Welcome to Bistro St. Michaels. 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 David Hayes, a native of England 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.<br /><br />We hope you enjoy our inspiration.<br /><br />Rob & Caroline Pascal, Owners<br />David Hayes, Executive Chef<br /><br />

"A St Michaels fixture under new management, but the room remains essentially the same. The menu reflects a mixture of traditional bistro fare and Eastern Shore seafood. Service, if anything, is overly attentive. The French toast and the gravlax are two excellent choices, as is the unusual but delicious duck quiche."

Guardado's serves up authentic, flavorful dishes from Spain and Latin America, in a casual and inviting atmosphere, in the heart of Bethesda, Maryland. We now offer Brunch on Sundays <br /><br />Chef Nicolas Guardado and his wife Reyna opened Guardado's Restaurant in 2007. Guardado brought with him a wealth of experience, rising through the ranks at local-area tapas restaurant Jaleo to a seasoned head chef. <br /><br />Now, he is infusing that knowledge into his own restaurant, as well as adding some popular Latin American entrees and some traditional dishes from his native Salvadorean background to Guardado's extensive menu. <br /><br />

"...it's very good. When it's not is another story for another time. The reservation was honored on time with prompt seating. That evening our party had raw oysters, barbecue shrimp, Ipswich clams, mussels in wine, steamed clams and a crab cake sandwich.
The timing of the dishes was excellent and the steamed or fried items arrived piping hot. Particularly notable were the fried Ipswich clams and the crab cake. We have had them many times and they are always excellent. The mussels and steamed clams come with plenty of toasted bread for dipping in the broths.
When Ben is running the house and Rachel is your server, a great meal can almost be guaranteed."
