Chef Andy is taking time out of his busy Pokemon Go schedule to augment your reality with three courses of bistro-generated sensory input on Sunday, July 24th . You’ll find a Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Arugula, Parmesan, Pickled Shallots, Pepitas, and Red Wine Vinaigrette to be delightfully immersive. The powerful flavor of Shrimp and Grits goes viral with Bacon, Kale and Red Pepper Coulis. A Chocolate-Coffee Pot de Creme overlays taste information about the dining environment into the real world. At $20 it won’t even drain your battery. Reed produces GPS enabled cocktails at the bar. Left: classic Shrimp & Grits, photo by rebel photographer Huong Nguyen.
We’ve got Clafouti back in stock, and you’d better get one. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Clafouti is what happens when one pours cake batter over fruit, and bakes it in a shallow vessel. The result is a moist, rustic little cake. Drench it in creme anglaise and you’ve got yourself spoonfuls of heaven. Enjoy Cherry Clafouti right now at Nook! Photo by Huong "Powdered Sugar" Nguyen.
There seem to be blatant similarities between the Blackened Tilapia Burrito that we’re serving for tonight’s All Night Happy Hour, and the Blackened Catfish Burrito we used to serve at lunch. Curiously, they both come dressed with a citrus-soy slaw, oven dried tomato, grilled green onion and lemon aioli. No one here can figure out how it happened. One major difference: All Night Happy Hour features $5 wine and cocktail selections as well as a unique bar menu and half off selected small plates at our Communal Table and Counter. Go figure.
Chef Andy has announced that he will be pairing up with Paella for tonight’s Laundry Day special (July 18th). In an interview this morning, the straight talking Chef called Seafood Paella with Linguica Sausage “a no nonsense meal, and the embodiment of deliciousness.” Laundry Day at Nook is the special that starts off every week and brings added value to the ticket for just $15.
If the eve of July 17th finds you living like a barren sister, chanting faint hymns to a cold, fruitless moon, then join us for our $20 Sunday Dinner. Summer Squash Salad with Arugula, Red Onion and Lemon Vinaigrette will make you earthlier happy than a rose distilled. We’ll serve you Roasted Tilapia with Sauteed Red Peppers, Green Beans, Fingerling Potatoes and Pesto as swift as a shadow and as short as any dream. Cherry Clafouti with Candied MInt wakes thee from thy flowery bed. Oh dear, Oberon, is that Sherene at the bar? May your heart be made of steel for Nook Bistro, friends.
