When people ask me why we're not open on New Year’s Eve, I always say "I'd rather be drunk than taking care of drunks." But if we were open on NYE, I would definitely order this: Stout-Braised Pot Roast with Cabbage, Bacon, Smashed Potatoes, and Pickled Mustard Seeds. It's just the next brilliant example of our mastery of braised meats here at Nook Bistro. The Mustard Seeds metaphorically take the place of your New Year's caviar, in case you were wondering. Think about it--you're going to need some meat and potatoes before making all those New Year's resolutions, aren't you?
The long reign of our legendary Pork Chop served with a delicious Arugula salad is over, for now. Countless moments of satisfaction and porky delight marked it's nearly seven year tenure on our menu. When asked if it would consider coming out of retirement, the Pork Chop stated "I've had a great run, and I don't want to end up like Brett Favre." Taking reps for outgoing Chop is a new Pork Chop, still served herb roasted, but with an entourage of Farro, Walnuts, Dates, Winter Squash, Grilled Castelfranco Radicchio and Sage Brown Butter

Nothing says "Fall" like Persimmon. There's something so romantic about the combination of Persimmon and Pomegranate in our Autumn Market Salad that makes me want to write a love poem on a cliff somewhere. Check it out with wild Arugula, Shaved Fennel, and a delicate Curry Vinaigrette. We make this salad every year while Persimmons are in season, and it's just fantastic!
