About  the Bistro

We create food that is rooted in traditional culinary styles, yet modern. We source the highest quality local ingredients, purchase sustainable seafood and free range eggs, work with people who raise their animals naturally, as well as partner with local farmers for the best organic vegetables. All of this comes together under the hand of Executive Chef Doug Stewart, a native of the Eastern Shore whose “creative American” cuisine is prepared with a European flair. Many of our items are already gluten free or can be served gluten free.

Thank you for taking the time to dine with us. We hope you enjoy our inspiration.
