We may be on a giant ball spinning in the so called “universe,” but where did we come from, and why are we here? Nook offers a metaphor at All Night Happy Hour. Ponder our existence with Chicken Meatballs as round as the earth itself, covered in Tomato and Roasted Pepper Sauce and dusted with Parmesan Cheese. Disturbed? There, there. We’ve got $5 wine and cocktail selections at the Communal Table and Counter as well as our bar menu to compose a comforting meal that unlike life, makes perfect sense.

The name Laundry Day refers to Monday, the day one spends cleaning up from the weekend revelry while cooking something easy on the back burner. Nook wants to be your back burner tonight, August 29th. We’re crafting up Fried Oyster Sandwiches with Citrus-Soy Slaw and Sriracha Aioli on Brioche for just $12. Comes with a side of mixed greens too! Laundry Day at Nook: your reward for doing the chores.
Proceed to Nook and do not pass go this Sunday, August 28th for three courses that eat like you’re at Park Place but cost about as much as Baltic Avenue. Thimble your way through a salad of Melon, Almonds, Cucumber, Shallot and Mustard Vinaigrette. Allow the flavors of a Grilled Hanger Steak with Garlic Green Beans, Roasted Fingerlings and Red Onion Jam to monopolize your palate. Chocolate and Banana Bread Pudding for dessert gets you out of jail free. Sherene wears a top hat at the bar. Cost: $20, real money. Photo by Huong "Big Money" Nguyen.
Enrollment is open for our August 21st Sunday Dinner. First up on the syllabus: Apple, Arugula, Candied Walnut, Goat Cheese and Apricot Vinaigrette. Maple-Mustard Glazed Chicken Breast with Butternut Squash & Spinach Risotto fits nicely in your book bag. Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble with Whipped Cream is the love note mom put in your lunch, only it’s dessert. Calm your back to school jitters with one of Sherene’s artistically crafted cocktails. Tuition is currently $20. Photo of last week's offering by Huong "All Three Courses" Nguyen.
Enjoy the magic of sliders at the Nook Bistro All Night Happy Hour Emporium tonight.
