It seems that imparting some oakiness into your favorite heirloom cocktail is all the rage these days, and we wanted in on the fun. What you see behind Cesar in the picture at the left is one of our house specialties aging away ever so nicely in an oak barrel I picked up down at the docks. Want to find out what it is? You’ll have to wait until early October, as it takes six weeks to mature. Want to find out what's in the other one? You'll have to wait three more weeks after that! Don't worry, I'll remind you.
Monday is a holiday which means this Sunday, August 31st is really just like having a second Saturday, only with a $20 Sunday Dinner! Make the most of this opportunity for revelry and join us for three perspective-changing courses that illuminate how good things really are. Chef James’ Chilled Summer Corn Soup with Lobster Salad connects your brain with taste buds you had all along, but didn’t know existed. If that doesn't blow your mind, we have a brand new Sunday Dinner entree for you: Confit Chicken with Dirty Farro, Pickled Peach Salsa and Black Garlic! Cornmeal Shortcake with Strawberries is the last course, but if you let the flavors guide you, you’ll see it’s really the beginning. Michael keeps your glass half full at the bar.
Nook likes to “blow the doors” off your Monday evenings, and we’re doing it again tonight, August 25th. Join us for Summer Vegetable-Seafood Risotto that will absolutely make your evening, and it only costs $12! Furthermore, since we like to get you in trouble on a school night, how about having a bottle of dry, Italian white wine with it for just $20? Laundry Day at Nook: cleaned and pressed just for you!
Now that we’re through the Summer Blockbuster season, how about enjoying a meal that’s refined and elegant like something you’d see at the nearby Laemmle Royal? This Sunday’s three course, $20 offering doesn’t have as many explosions or superheroes as your typical big budget Sunday dinner, but you’ll feel good about it the next day. A lovely salad of Cucumber, Tomato and Feta with Jalapeno Chimichurri is as lovely as any period drama. Silver Coho Salmon with Summer Corn and Roast Mushrooms will give you wings of desire . And Matcha (Green Tea) Panna Cotta makes a better ending than Howard’s, that’s for sure. Michael plays Maggie Smith at the bar, in theatres August 24th.
Chef James calls upon you tonight, Monday, August 18th to enjoy our utterly amazing Southern Fried Chicken "Banh Mi" (depicted, left)! Don't miss out on this chance to experience the mind blowing collision of Asian flavors and Southern cooking, only available at Nook Bistro. Thirsty? We’ll be pouring Bourbon and Berry Coolers to drink as well. Laundry at Nook: the best $12 you’ll spend all week.
