photoCheck out the extensive bar menu at the Sole Proprietor for $5 appetizers Monday through Friday from 4-6:30pm and get cheap, high-quality seafood. The menu includes a number of creative sushi rolls, as well as seafood classics like oysters and shrimp scampi. Although the dishes are supposedly appetizer-sized, they’re big enough for a meal (unless you have the appetite of a teenage boy – but order 2 apps and it will only set you back $10!). I had a vegetarian roll (avocado, cucumber, and asparagus) and my favorite roll, the tuna crunch (tuna, avocado, crunchy sweet potato sticks). Our meal for three came to just $25, or $30 with tax and tip. Not too shabby!
