Not Crawfish Pie . . .
April 24th, 2017

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
The peepers predicted last week made their presence known that very night, and by the time we got to Sunday’s 80+ degrees, they were raising a ruckus to wake the dead. Those same temperatures sent daffodil blooms bursting forth from the confinement of their papery shrouds, and catkins cascading from tree branch tips, while buds everywhere swelled with an almost unseemly urgency. The generalized jumping-for-joy of the natural world may subside slightly as the mercury slips back to seasonable, but the trend is unmistakable, undeniable and utterly welcome!
Mother’s Day Brunch is now coming into view on the horizon, a mere four weeks away, — not too soon to secure your place at the table, so to speak! In the meantime, there will be the usual parade of appetizing options for the omnivorous, the picky and even the parsimonious, especially on Wednesdays!
Wednesday Special
This week the Wednesday special will begin with the aquaponic produce of Springworks of Lisbon in the form of greens graced with radishes and a champagne vinaigrette. The main course will be a chicken and sausage jambalaya with creole spices, celery and onion over basmati rice – unbeatable! Dessert will be a cornmeal cookie with orange segments and whipped cream! Son of gun, we’ll have good fun!
Friday Night Jazz April 21, 2017
Jesse Feinberg and his keyboard return to the New Space this week for a little post-tax tension release. Let it all go with great food and great jazz this Friday night at Solo Bistro from 6:30 to 9:30 PM!
As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where chères amie-o’s meet to eat and the good life gets better.
Pia & Will Neilson, Owners

Deluvian Digression
March 28th, 2017

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
Patches of grass are appearing here and there as the late March blanket of snow gets a little threadbare. April approaches apace, and with it an annual recollection of the opening lines of the Canterbury Tales. This year it comes with an additional Chaucerian reference, as a barn being moved in our neighborhood drove by with a canoe hanging from its rafters, recalling the dim-witted husband of the Miller’s Tale, who gullibly took to the rafters of his own barn in a tub, like Noah, while his unfaithful wife and too-clever-by-half boarder got up to no good. They got their come uppance, and the Miller’s Tale alone survived into this correspondent’s middle-aged, though apparently still-adolescent, memory.

But speaking of spring, and with it lamb of course, Chef Ray Franklyn’s last Wednesday Special menu for March is on the case . . .
Wednesday Special
This week the Wednesday Special will start with Springworks organic greens, in a house-made ranch dressing. Shepherd’s pie will be the main course, with lamb and ground beef, green peas, carrots, onions and mashed potatoes, while dessert will be a delicious orange cheese cake with a rhubarb coulis.
Friday Night Jazz March 31, 2017
Darrell Morrell will breeze in from Gorham with his keyboard in tow to play out this too-long month of March on the pleasantest of terms. Come to Solo this Friday night for a well-merited and unregretted farewell to a cold and snowy March, from 6:30 to 9:30 PM.
As always, we look forward to seeing you on Front Street in downtown Bath, where Middle English meets the Mid-coast.

Pia & Will Neilson, Owners
