If you’re not chaperoning your children to Coachella this Sunday, come by and see Brian stage dive off the counter at Nook as he returns to host yet another brilliant $20 Sunday Dinner! Oh sure, you could be watching Nick Cave and Wu Tang Clan, but wouldn’t you rather start off your meal with a Spring Vegetable Salad, straight from the Farmers Market, with Goat Cheese and Lemon Dill Vinaigrette? Don’t answer yet, because the Red Hot Chili Peppers have nothing on our Pan Fried Tilapia with Shrimp-Andouille Hash with Pan Gravy. And rather than finishing your evening with another encore by Social Distortion, have a Cornmeal Shortcake with Strawberries and Cream instead. It's all that without the two hour drive back!
For those of you who ARE lucky enough to be going to the desert for Coachella this weekend you’ll have a full day ahead of you getting all of that dust out of your clothes on Monday. Take a break from the grime and join us for some old school Louisiana Style Red Beans and Rice with a Petite Market Salad for just $12! Pair it up with the an Uncle Pierson’s Sazerac for just $5 during Happy Hour and the circle is complete!
For only the second time in Nook history we’re very excited to announce a Wine Dinner at Nook! Join us on April 17th along with host Tatia Tokunaga (formerly of Orris) and winemaker Bion Rice of Sunstone and Artiste wines. Enjoy five courses of creative pairings from our menu and their cellar. There hasn’t been a collaboration like this since Mark Zuckerberg and Frank Gehry hooked up for the new Facebook headquarters. You can check out the menu and buy tickets here.
Say hello to one of the people I admire most, Mr. Fausto Ramirez, as he presides over Sunday Dinner in my stead on April 14th. In addition to his charm and good looks he will captivate you with an absolutely outstanding three course meal for only $20. You'll know it's Spring when you’re eating a salad of Asparagus, Hard Cooked Egg and Breakfast Radish with Shallot Vinaigrette. Next, get excited about a brand new headliner: Roast Lamb Shoulder with Spring Vegetable and Pan Jus! Finish it off with the rustic French treat that results from pouring cake batter all over fresh fruit and then baking it: Strawberry Clafouti with Vanilla Bean Creme Anglaise. Fausto would love to see your friendly faces and Michael will be skillfully crafting up cocktails as if they were works of art.
If you can’t get enough of him, or if you don’t make it on Sunday, Fausto will also be hosting Laundry Day on Monday, April 15. And what a Laundry Day it will be! Welcome back the palate popping Deep South Burger with Fried Green Tomato, Pimento Cheese and Pickle served with a Petite Market Salad. Get the full flavor for just $12, and say hi to my man Fausto while you’re at it.
