We are happy to announce that Bistro is open for in-house dining and look forward to welcoming you back into our remodeled space. We have sanded, painted, refinished and upgraded most everything! We even have a new HVAC system, quite possibly making us the cleanest space around!
While we are only allowed to operate at 50%, we are converting to reservations only, so please call ahead at (410) 745-9111 or click the link below. Facial coverings will be required upon entering and while you are moving about the restaurant. You are not required to wear them while seated.
For the time being we will also be offering limited carry out dining until 6:30 pm nightly, with possible increased restrictions on weekends and holidays, so please plan accordingly.
As this is uncharted territory for all of us, we kindly ask for your patience as we adjust to the “new normal”.
We can’t wait to see you!
Located in St. Michaels, Maryland
