If you’re not otherwise engaged this evening, we invite you to join us for the always lovely and utterly delightful Monday night soiree we call Laundry Day at Nook. Lend us the pleasure of your company and we’ll serve you up a hot plate of Catfish and Grits, superbly prepared by Chef James, for just $12. You may also find pleasure in one of our many beer and wine offerings, or one of our exquisite cocktails. It all transpires tonight, October 12th at Nook!
We just got off the phone with Gwyneth Paltrow and she assured us that diners will have no trouble commuting to Nook on October 12th for our three course, $20 Sunday Dinner. This is great news because Chef James (who should be the White House Chef, but we're glad he’s not) has another meal worthy of an Executive In Chief planned for you. Curry Roasted Cauliflower with Beets, Kale and Quinoa leads the motorcade. Grilled Chicken with Spinach, Creamy Polenta, Royal Trumpet Mushrooms and Salsa Verde is definitely worth diverting traffic for. And a Cinnamon-Apple Shortbread is no lame duck in its last course of this dinner. Michael adjusts his ear-piece and makes you fine cocktails at the bar.
If your lips have never had the joy of tasting a barrel aged cocktail, now is your chance! No idea what I’m talking about? Here’s the progression: 1. Procure an oak barrel of some sort, preferably from a Cooper (going down to the docks is another place to find them). 2. Mix up a big batch of your favorite cocktail. 3. Pour said cocktail into barrel and age for approximately six weeks. The result is a refined and more complex version of your new favorite-favorite cocktail. Starting tonight, we’ll be pouring our Barrel Aged Louisianne for your enjoyment, with more to follow. Come by and try it before the barrel runs dry.
Chef James’ Meatloaf is back by popular demand, and in a community of otherwise unremarkable comfort food offerings, it’s public enemy number one! Join us tonight, October 6th when we serve up our legendary Meatloaf, this time with Smashed Root Vegetables and some very special Slow Cooked Rapini. It’s $12, it starts your week out right, and it just doesn’t get any better! Enjoy with a glass of Garnacha for $5.
Punctured your bicycle tire on a hillside desolate? No worries, this charming bistro will make a man (or woman) of you yet! Join us Sunday, October 5th for three courses of exquisitely crafted cuisine that will make life’s complexities seem as smooth as one of Michael ’s refreshing gin drinks. The man in the pantry serves you Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Cheddar, Red Onion and Whole Grain Mustard Vinaigrette to start. Meatloaf with Smashed Root Vegetables and Black Garlic Jus knows so much about these things. Feeling a bit shy about a lovely and delicate Buttermilk Panna Cotta with Cookie and “Gorgeous Berries” for dessert? It’s gruesome that someone so handsome should care! $20 for the lot.
