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.”
Locals and visitors gather here as much for the the food as for the fun, friendly atmosphere.
“DINING A LA FRANCAISE – When they opened Bistro 112 they set out to do five things perfectly: steak au poivre, pommes frites, raspberry tart, espresso and–of course–French bread. 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.”
A proponent for sustainable agriculture.
“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.”
