Bistro 112

Interior-2

After more than 40 years as a marketing executive in aerospace, high-tech and financial services industries, Deborah Tucker has left Great Falls, Va., behind to buy Stone Soup Bistro. Now she’s fulfilling a lifelong dream of owning a restaurant. Having lived in France, she has changed the menu and decor to that of a French Bistro, still with a mission to offer food from local farmers. The Bistro is opening its door seven days a week, offering creative French food at affordable prices.

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.

Local musicians jam and entertain the guests from time to time and with an expanded local wine and beer offerings, Happy Hour is now offered Monday through Friday for those wanting to unwind and relax with friends after work. Bistro 112 is on German Street in Shepherdstown.
