If you’ve been craving our brilliant food, or eating too much of it, and you just can’t get off the couch, we’ve got news for you! Nook is partnering with Zip Zap to bring you our brand of cosmopolitan comfort food delivered conveniently to your home within a three mile radius of us. There’s a delivery charge of $5, and the folks at ZZ tell me it takes up to 45 minutes for them to get you our well crafted bistro cuisine. We’re just rolling this out, so if you would like to help us test it, we’ll make it a little extra sweet for you: order delivery any time before June 5th and I'll throw in a free Chocolate and Banana Bread Pudding or Rhubarb Shortcake with your order of $50 or more when you mention this email.
What’s Chef James in the mood for tonight? Spaghetti and Meatballs, that's what! Join us tonight, June 9th for the weekly meal that keeps it real: Laundry Day at Nook. Get a steaming hot plate of the ultimate comfort food for the low price of $12! That leaves you with enough cash to enjoy a $20 bottle of Petite Sirah. Fuel up at Nook, then go out there and make us proud!
So the other day I’m walking around the restaurant, just doing my thing (as I do). I come around the corner, and what has Chef James just plated up? Nothing less than perhaps one of the most appetizing Pork Chops I’ve ever seen in my life! There it is, a Grilled Kurobuta Pork Chop, the succulent dark flesh of the Berkshire Pig, smelling deliciously of its time on the grill, yet still moist and dripping. And what’s it covered in? A trip to Southeast Asia, that’s what! Draped over the chop, enticingly is a melange of papaya and crushed peanuts, flavored delicately with a sweet Nam Phrik, the Thai vinaigrette of my dreams. I happened to be in the right place at the right time, but you can just come by and order one. Enjoy!
Join us Sunday June 8th for a swashbuckling flavor adventure that takes your palate to three exotic locations in just as many courses for just $20. First, visit the sacred Temple of the Green Goddess and recover the mythical salad of Roasted Corn and Tomato bedecked with her treasured dressing. Next travel by land and sea, to discover the delicious wonders of Braised Lamb Neck with Smoked Cauliflower Puree, Hokkaido Scallop and Apricot. Finish with the sweet kiss of Buttermilk Panna Cotta and Strawberries. Evan will be serving cocktails out of crystal skulls. Watch out for poisonous arrows and that big rolling ball on your way out.
Our Sunday Dinner got into some legal trouble this week. It seems that it exceeded the amount of deliciousness and value allowed by existing flavor laws. Come by and help bail it out this Sunday, June 1st. Arraignment begins with a salad of Fried Oyster, Mixed Greens, Bacon, Pickled Shallot and Creamy Herbsaint Dressing. Blackened Catfish with Collard Greens, Blackeyed Peas and Celery Root Remoulade enters a very appetizing plea. And review the evidence with a lovely little Chocolate Pot de Creme with Caramel and Whipped Cream. Bail is set at $20. Evan drops the gavel on the bar.
