Laundry Day at Nook is the weekly event that has people charging into the new week like stampeding green dinosaurs. Join us tonight Monday, January 19th and gnash your fearsome teeth into our legendary Southern Fried Chicken “Banh Mi” for just $12. And before you barrel off, you speeding, fearsome creature, how about a barrel aged cocktail too? Laundry Day at Nook: get in, dine, stomp out!
Warm up for another delicious episode of Downton Abbey this Sunday, January 18th with a three course dinner fit for the landed gentry, but priced for their servants. Beet, Blue Cheese, Citrus and Dill as your starter delicately coaxes you away from the drawing room. Enrique won’t be wearing gloves when he serves you Hungarian Beef Stew, Marrow and Toast, but you’ll still enjoy it immensely. A Pear and Cranberry Crumble for dessert will have you sitting up straight in your evening wear without touching the back of your seat. Michael prepares cocktails for your stubborn enjoyment, but if you’re resolute in your opposition, we have wine too
We’ll only have the delightful salad you see to your left for a little while longer. Come enjoy one of my favorite creations: Persimmon with Shaved Fennel, Wild Arugula, Pomegranate and Curry Vinaigrette. It’s the taste of the season plus a delicate touch of the exotic.
Thanks again to all of you who supported the Burger Benefit for Enrique last month. Thank you also to the many others who made additional contributions. I’m happy to announce that Enrique (depicted left, prior to accident) has returned to work this week, and that he’s in good spirits. We’re glad to have him back!
