Enjoy Chef Geoff's genuine hospitality and casual cuisine with an Italian flair. Lia’s is a neighborhood restaurant in the heart of Chevy Chase. Come for a glass of wine, hand tossed pizzas, fresh pasta, or charcuterie and cheese, and the result will be the same. You'll be back for more. Join us on Sundays for brunch and every Monday for half price wines. Enjoy our ever-popular happy hour daily from 3pm to 7pm and all night on Monday and Tuesday. An eighty seat patio provides some of the best outdoor dining in the area. We truly have something for everyone and look forward to welcoming you. Cheers! Chef Geoff

A converted garage features soaring ceilings, garage doors that open onto the patio and outside bar, with a wood fired grill, raw bar and a vast craft beer list all make for the hottest restaurant on the Eastern Shore. A nice dinner for two or a quick burger at the open kitchen counter, you can always count on great food, friendly service and fun. Opened in November 2010, Brasserie Brightwell is located in the Easton Market Square at 206 North Washington Street in historic Easton, MD and serves French-inspired cuisine with an American twist. Owned/ operated by brothers-in-law Chef Brendan Keegan & Brian Fox of 208 Talbot fame, and Bob Yabroff.

"Our third dinner here...each time the food has been outstanding (salmon fresh and perfectly grilled, amazing burgers and fries, soups and salads delicious). Typical brasserie fare so the menu is broad enough to satisfy anyone. It's an informal, fun and somewhat noisy restaurant (so if you are looking for an elegant and quiet experience this isn't the place). The outdoor patio is nice during the warm season but unfortunately it overlooks a very boring street and parking lot. Reasonably priced given the high quality of the food."

A Livanos' family creation, Molyvos is the closest you can get to Greece in New York City. Critics agree that Molyvos serves perhaps the finest example of Greek cuisine in New York, and beyond. People from around the world have discovered that Molyvos serves the true foods and wines of Greece, along with a large dose of the country’s warm and lively spirit. Molyvos’ menu is built upon the home-style cooking of Greece using authentic recipes, classical cooking techniques and superior ingredients. The wine list, under the keen direction of Kamal Kouiri, is unique for its depth and breadth of excellent Greek labels and small producers from the Mediterranean whose wine deserves to be enjoyed. Molyvos also boasts a carefully selected Pre and Post-theatre menu that perfectly accompanies an evening of entertainment.

"Have been going here for business lunches for 5 years and it never disappoints. Consistently excellent Greek dishes, perhaps not inspired or extraordinary, but always delicious. Reasonably priced. Following a renovation about 2 years ago the dining room is very pleasant and many tables are nicely spaced so it's possible to have a conversation. Really nothing negative to say at all....try it!"

"The kitchen here turns out unusually high quality cuisine. And the restaurant has a terrific view of the St Michaels harbor. Neither of those two great attributes are matched by the decor (really uncomfortable wire tables that belong in a roadside stand somewhere) or service ("casual" would be a complimentary way of putting it). If the management wants to charge higher prices for higher quality entrees, then get to work on the decor and professional service! Could they at least find a tablecloth? Of course I don't expect a tablecloth when I'm served a hot dog by a kid at an informal restaurant, but that's not what this restaurant wants to be."

Waterline offers up Boston-style comfort foods, perfect for sharing and made from the finest, locally sourced ingredients. Appetizers like housemade chips with Grafton cheddar beer dip, Judith Point lemon calamari and chef’s vast selection of sliders are all great for sharing. More substantial items like our long line tuna, burgers with hand-cut fries, crisp entrée salads and a hearty selection of sandwiches. Local Boston favorites include a top of the line chowder, house made cannolis and a large selection of local microbrews.

"This restaurant in the Marriott Long Wharf hotel has a nice view (for a select few tables ) of the harbor and the overall interior is airy, modern and pleasant. The food is just as good, if not better, with a wide-ranging menu of the usual favorites (salad, burgers, sandwiches, but also the random Indian dish and more innovative appetizers). the prices are quite reasonable, and portions decent without being excessive. The only complaint is that on a recent night the music speakers were turned up WAY too loud. I would definitely return if in the neighborhood."
