“Tucker’s brasserie, Bistro 112, is a charismatic addition to German Street’s already notable culinary assortment but is also a second life of sorts – for both the owner and her establishment.”

“You might say all roads lead to West Virginia’s oldest town….and the sophisticated Bistro 112 is housed in an 1830s brick building that once served as the town’s haberdasher…”

“French cuisine is tried and true, with an old world decadence and a traditional romanticism. At Bistro 112, owner Deb Tucker welcomes guests in a fashionable ruffled apron that hints of summers spent in a farmhouse the South of France. The warm dining room glows with the heat from the fireplace and candlelight reflects off of fresh flowers while soft music plays in the background. When your meal arrives, you will fully understand the mixture of tradition and le nouveau that makes Bistro 112 in Shepherdstown well worth the drive from DC.”

“DINING A LA FRANCAISE – When Deb Tucker opened Bistro 112 (112 W German St., 304-876-8477), she set out to do five things perfectly: steak au poivre, pommes frites, raspberry tart, espresso and–of course–French bread. Locals and visitors gather here as much for the the food as for the fun, friendly atmosphere. Solo diners are embraced. Inside, the decor includes paper lanterns, glass masks, and a flirty mannequin in a 1020s Lanvin dress. In warm weather, the party moves outdoors under the stars, to a long communal table or intimate garden corner.”

The Observer, Aug 2011

“The menu offers French favorites such as l’entrecote and pommes frites, savory and sweet crepes and a variety of salads, soups and sandwiches. The Bistro, a proponent for sustainable agriculture, continues to offer fresh produce from the local farming community whenever possible. Grass-fed beef, free-range chickens, creamy cheeses, juicy tomatoes, and fresh picked strawberries are some of the ingredients they prepare daily when in season.”
