Seems like NOCA has something different going on every night it's open -- soft shell crab suppers on Tuesdays, lobster rolls on Wednesdays, Simple Suppers on Sundays -- and now there's one more thing to add to your dining schedule: Bar Bites on Thursdays.
It's an affordable menu of creative dishes that will rotate weekly. Tonight's the debut, and it's available only at the counter, by reservation.
