Obi-Wan: “Your father wanted you to eat this when you were old enough, but your uncle wouldn’t allow it. It’s your father’s Laundry Day special: Spicy Pork Meatballs with Polenta and Petite Salad. At just $12, it’s an elegant meal for a more civilized age.” Thanks, Master Jedi, now switch off your targeting computer, it’s Laundry Day!
To commemorate Cinco de Mayo we’ll be throwing a little bash at our communal table and counter. We’ll have Happy Hour all night with Chips and Guacamole and Tacos de Carnitas on the menu, in addition to half off most of our small plates and $5 wine and cocktail selections. And what Cinco de Mayo would be complete without a $5 Margarita? I can’t think of one. Viva Mexico, viva Nook.
If you can pause from dancing around the May-Pole this weekend, we’ll be serving a $20 Sunday Dinner that’s not stern in faith, but more like a carnival for your palate. Join the other fauns, nymphs and Gothic monsters on May 3th for three courses of lively splendor. Cannellini Beans gayly decked with Radish, Parsley, Olives and White Anchovy start off the affair. Roasted Lamb Shoulder fluttered with Smashed English Peas and Jus could please a He-Goat. And there’s no better finale to the mirth than Coconut Rice Pudding with Pineapple. Michael removes Haw Thorns at the bar.
We’re taking the idea of “drinking your dessert” to the next level this weekend. After your meal why not indulge in a fruity and intoxicating Grapefruit Negroni with Mango Sorbet? It’s like nothing you’ve ever enjoyed before, and it’s got Gin in it. Nook Bistro: we give you dessert you can drink!
Recently I read that “Pythagorean Theorem” is a misnomer because ancient Chinese, Egyptians and Indians all used it centuries before Pythagoras. I remembered that Nook commits a similar error every week. We call our Monday special Laundry Day but we only serve it at night! What isn’t in question however is that you won’t find a better deal for an artistically crafted, quality meal tonight, April 27th. For just $12 you can have Chef James' legendary Red Beans and Rice with Andouille Sausage. It’s the meal we call Laundry Day, even though it’s at night.
