Wet Ones
April 25th, 2017

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
Another wet Wednesday appears in store this week, as April wends its way toward May. Spring is settling in, and it won’t be long before the mowers mobilize again to moderate the unruly luxuriance of local lawns. The maple tree blooms behind the restaurant are blown, and just in the course of Monday’s sunny afternoon the buds began to burst, unfurling the flags of spring for sure. In such a season, a wet Wednesday or two cannot be begrudged – particularly when one’s options for distraction from a deluge include the $19.99 Solo Bistro Wednesday Special that delivers so much for so little!
Wednesday Special
This week Chef Ray Franklyn takes his inspiration for the Wednesday special from the Far East. The appetizer will be local sugar kelp in a salad with shredded carrots and onions in a sesame chili vinaigrette. The main course will be soba noodles in ramen broth with bok choy, celery, sweet peppers and toasted cashews. Dessert will be a house-made orange ice cream. Yum!
Friday Night Jazz April 28, 2017
Jesse Feinberg and his keyboard were advertised for last week, but due to a scheduling fail, it was actually the great jazz guitarist Gary Wittner, to whom we apologize for the oversight. The good news is that it’s actually this week that Jesse performs for Friday Night Jazz. So celebrate spring with piano 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 you can find fine food and drink in fair weather and foul!

Tapas Tuesday Again, Plus Easter Brunch
April 10th, 2017

Dear Friends and Customers of Solo Bistro:
Tapas Tuesday is on tap for tomorrow night, and this month it seems certain we will avoid a snowstorm. A pair ospreys returned last week to their nest atop the Wilder Bridge to Arrowsic, and with today’s almost toasty temps, a mourning cloak butterfly was seen on the hunt for a sip of sap among the hardwoods of the Holt Research Forest. We may not be entirely past the threat of snow yet, but the prospects for frozen precipitation are looking pretty poor for Passover and Easter, praise be! Peepers predicted by next week!
Speaking of Easter, we will be serving brunch on Sunday from 10:30 till 2 to celebrate the day and the season. If you’re footloose and fancy free, or merely looking for a fuss-free feast for the family, set your sights on Solo Bistro this Sunday!!
In the interim, of course, Chef Ray Franklyn also has some super fare in store for a song on workaday Wednesday, to wit . . . .

Wednesday Special
A little lime vinaigrette will liven up a starter salad of Springworks greens for the first course of this week’s Wednesday Special. For the main course, Chef Ray can offer a chili chicken bowl – slow braised chicken in southwestern spices over black bean rice with frisée and avocado crème. For the finale, five-spice ice cream and an almond macaroon. Where else, but here? The finest kind of food, for all your senses.

Friday Night JazzApril 14, 2017
Ahmad Hassan Muhammad returns with his keyboard and his impressive musical gifts to the New Space this Friday. A man for all seasons – and this week for spring! — Muhammad has been delighting diners here since he was a freshman at Bowdoin, the better part of a decade ago. Perfect piano jazz from Ahmad Hassan Muhammad 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 we sing for spring, and one can eat singular, and singularly good, food for a song some days.
