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. Depicted left: last week's Roasted Lamb Shoulder with Charred Eggplant and English Peas.
Chef James is Nook’s authority on foot massage establishments and he recently tried out the services of our new neighbors, Pampered Foot Massage. We're happy to report that he gave the experience high marks and seemed very relaxed for days afterwards. Pampered Foot Massage is right next door to Nook and is open every day from 10am to 10pm. We want to see these guys do well, so we'll will throw in a glass of wine for the first five people who get massages there and dine at Nook afterwards. Tell them Nook sent you (we're trying to get in good with these guys).
If you’ve ever laid awake at night pondering the deeper mysteries of the universe, such as what makes our Caesar Salad so good, your day has come. Actually, your day came eight years ago when the LA Times first published the recipe for our Cornershop Caesar Salad, but now it's come again! Last week our esteemed local paper republished the recipe we gave them in a segment acknowledging some of the city’s most beloved Caesar Salads. We’re honored to be included! Thank you LA Times. And folks, if you need any pointers making our Caesar at home, don’t be afraid to ask!
