If your lips have never had the joy of tasting a barrel aged cocktail, now is your chance! No idea what I’m talking about? Here’s the progression: 1. Procure an oak barrel of some sort, preferably from a Cooper (going down to the docks is another place to find them). 2. Mix up a big batch of your favorite cocktail. 3. Pour said cocktail into barrel and age for approximately six weeks. The result is a refined and more complex version of your new favorite-favorite cocktail. Starting tonight, we’ll be pouring our Barrel Aged Louisianne for your enjoyment, with more to follow. Come by and try it before the barrel runs dry.
Chef James’ Meatloaf is back by popular demand, and in a community of otherwise unremarkable comfort food offerings, it’s public enemy number one! Join us tonight, October 6th when we serve up our legendary Meatloaf, this time with Smashed Root Vegetables and some very special Slow Cooked Rapini. It’s $12, it starts your week out right, and it just doesn’t get any better! Enjoy with a glass of Garnacha for $5.
Punctured your bicycle tire on a hillside desolate? No worries, this charming bistro will make a man (or woman) of you yet! Join us Sunday, October 5th for three courses of exquisitely crafted cuisine that will make life’s complexities seem as smooth as one of Michael ’s refreshing gin drinks. The man in the pantry serves you Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Bacon, Cheddar, Red Onion and Whole Grain Mustard Vinaigrette to start. Meatloaf with Smashed Root Vegetables and Black Garlic Jus knows so much about these things. Feeling a bit shy about a lovely and delicate Buttermilk Panna Cotta with Cookie and “Gorgeous Berries” for dessert? It’s gruesome that someone so handsome should care! $20 for the lot.
We’re not letting Oktoberfest pass by without a little celebration of our own and we’re kicking it off tonight, Oktober 2nd. Join us as Chef James dishes up German flavors in a Nook Bistro style. We’ll be serving up Crispy Lamb Shank Confit with House “Sauered Kraut,” and you may enjoy pairing it up with one of our German beer selections for that festival feeling. Nooktoberfest starts tonight, and continues until we run out of Kraut.
I’ve just received an encoded message via the Nook Transbistro Communication Network (NTCN). Let me just decrypt it here. It has Chef James’ secret code name, and it’s telling me that tonight we’ll be serving up Spaghetti and Meatballs. If you’re not familiar with Laundry Day, it’s the meal that properly initiates a new live/work cycle and rewards you for keeping your life in order for a mere $12. This culinary happening is non-pareilles, as the caper label says, so materialize in our dining room tonight!
