Chef James has grabbed his Nalgeen water bottle and headed somewhere East of here in search of inspiration for this weekend’s $20 Sunday Dinner. We’re not talking about the Inland Empire either (that was for you Ben G). Join us April 13th and you can enjoy the mind blowing result of his findings as we sample “the new flavor.” Start off the journey with a Fattoush-like bread salad made of Pita, Tomato, Cucumber, Feta and Romaine (note: Passover isn’t until Monday, so it’s okay). You won’t need a compass to locate the happy part of your palate when you arrive upon an exotic medley of Lamb Meatballs with Clams, Kale and Garbanzo Beans. And the discovery is complete with a refreshing Rosewater Panna Cotta adorned with Strawberries. Michael’s cocktails function as GPS should you lose your way.
Come join other like-minded denizens of West LA as we pass our time waiting for the cycle to spin to its inevitable conclusion (wow, that sounds ominous), and enjoy a good meal while we’re at it (ah, that's better). This Monday, April 14th we’ll indulge in Lamb Meatballs, Tomato Sauce and Creamy Polenta with a Petite Market Salad for just $12. Really folks, you can’t beat the meal or the nice local crowd we get. It’s turning into a real neighborhood event, this Laundry Day thing. I think we’ll keep it (until its inevitable conclusion. Oops, there we go again).
For those of you who didn’t get in on the last round of Coq Au Vin, we’re doing it again! Come by this Monday, April 7th and enjoy a meal that takes you to the French countryside for just $12. Coq Au Vin with Mashed Potatoes and Bacon awaits you. Arrive early to avoid disappointment, our ovens can only fit so much chicken! We’ll also be opening $20 bottles of Gascogne Blanc and Montepulciano (even though it’s not French) to accompany this delight of rustic cooking.
Michael took some time out from his busy Dungeons and Dragons schedule to conjure up a new cocktail from the darkness this week. He has christened the drink The Lannister in homage to the imminent return of Game of Thrones. Named after the ruling house of Westeros, this is a blend of Bourbon, Ramazzotti and Blood Orange. Like the show, the cocktail is good in its own obscene way, but without the airborne entrails, gratuitous nudity, or any other examples of questionable taste we could mention.
Greetings. This is Sunday Dinner at Nook speaking. You know me. I’m the artistically crafted, delicious and satisfying three course meal that just costs $20 the last day of every weekend at your favorite neighborhood bistro. Join me April 6th when I’ll be putting on my best to delight your palate. First I will dazzle you with a lovely Spring Quinoa Salad with Asparagus, English Peas and Feta. Next, I'm bringing my "A" game as I present Crab Stuffed Tilapia with Tabasco Butter. Let me leave you with the sweet taste of Apricot Short Bread and Vanilla Bean Creme Anglaise to remember me by all week until the next Sunday Dinner. Evan is my comrade in cocktails.
