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.
We’ve got another brilliant $20 Sunday Dinner for you that draws inspiration from around the globe. Join us August 17th for three courses of culinary diversity! Start out locally with Peaches, Pickled Red Onion, Mozzarella and Wild Arugula. Next up, your palate travels East with Hummus, Beef, Pine Nuts, Parsley and Mint. And the legendary Pistachio Tres Leches with Strawberries wraps it somewhere South of the border. Gabriel guest bar tends and Sangria will be flowing! (Depcited left: Gazpacho 8/10/14)
If you’ve ever wondered why we do special things here at Nook Bistro, the answer is simple: we love you. We give you the most pure love a bistro can possibly give a guest. Come on down and feel the love tonight, August 11th as we roll out Grilled Chicken with Summer Vegetable Risotto for just $12. We’ll make it sweeter with $5 glasses of Trebbiano all night long in case you needed an extra example of our commitment. Laundry Day, a love as fragrant and delicate as fabric softener.
We are fortunate to have so many loyal, fantastic “regulars” here at Nook Bistro. One of the things I enjoy most about my job is the camaraderie and community spirit that we’ve generated with our devoted guests over the years. So, I’m very sad to bid farewell to Ms. Pei Pei Tan, who is leaving to start a new and exciting life up in the Bay Area. On behalf of Nook and myself, we wish you the absolute best. Thank you for keeping us company on the slow nights, and for bringing us all of those unbelievable Porto’s pastries on holidays (I hope you other regulars are reading this). You’ve been a truly special guest, and we certainly will miss you!
