Solo Bistro Restaurant Review: Chef Tony Lavelle brings his flair for rustic fare with a touch of Asia and elegance to this jazzy restaurant in the historic shipbuilding community of Bath. His carefully edited menu includes dishes like mussels in a creamy red curry, coconut and basil sauce or a simple crisp flatbread with pear and blue velvet cheese. Go on to spice crusted scallops with star anise and bok choy, aromatic and exotic, or the pan-roasted duck with sweet balsamic against tart cranberry. Desserts tend toward the classically simple; we’d just as soon skip them in favor of a nightcap in the hip lounge. But if you must, the lemon lime custard tart is light and satisfying.
