Cozy neighborhood bistro and roof deck in the heart of Shaw, DC. Our beautifully appointed dining room is the perfect location for a special occasion dinner with your significant other or a celebratory dinner with a group of your closest friends and family. Our roof deck boasts picturesque vistas of the DC skyline, and is ideal for a leisurely glass of wine, some tasty bar snacks, and catching up with good friends. <br />

We accept reservations at our communal tables on Tuesday and Wednesday for dinner and Sunday for all-day brunch. Limited reservations are accepted Thursday-Saturday. <br /><br />You are welcome to walk in and add your name to our list or dine at our bar.<br /><br />Eat the Rich is an oyster bar by James Beard award nominee Derek Brown and award-winning oysterman Travis Croxton of Rappahannock River Oysters. Featuring local oysters and a menu inspired by the Chesapeake Bay, Eat the Rich is a tribute to mid-Atlantic cuisine and the great oyster houses of Washington, D.C. The kitchen, helmed by chef Julien Shapiro, offers seafood dishes ranging from whelks to eel pie. The bar, manned by bartender Ben Matz, serves oyster shooters, classic drinks, signature pitcher cocktails and awesome frozen drinks.<br /><br />This isn't your typical oyster bar. At Eat the Rich, you can eat, drink and listen to rock music. It's named after a Mötorhead song, after all.

"Went for Restaurant Week. Food was great, service was attentive, but not intrusive, value really good. Only problem was being seated near the service station. THAT was intrusive. Waitstaff hung around there, chitchatting, and we felt not a little crowded. The kitchen entrance was next to us, I didn't care so much, but the ambiance was compromised by the knot of servers, etc, (really) nearby."

Bistro 112 is a neighborhood French Bistro in the center of historic downtown Shepherdstown. It is a favorite of local residents and a haven for travelers passing through - who enjoy the area for its history, theater, music, biking trails, small shops and river activities. The Bistro, decorated in eclectic art, offers creative French food at affordable prices. Built in 1830, the Bistro has several dining areas: front bar, upstairs salon or outdoor patio under wisteria. We prepare local ingredients into French favorites such as steak au poivre, coquille St Jacques, roasted chicken, salad nicoise, pommes frites, savory & sweet crepes, house made soups and rich desserts. Rooms are available for private events.

"While I am ticked that open table withholds points if you link to their website from the restaurant's site to book a table (users beware), that in no way reflects on the restaurant. I would like for this policy to be less opaque. Chez Billy made me a wonderful cocktail and fabulous skate. The folks were professional and warm, and even called me back when I called to complain on the opentable issue. Prices are moderate+, but good for the value."
