A new, chic neighborhood bistro and wine bar provide inner comfort for the indulgent gourmet. Shab Row Bistro and Wine Bar in Everedy Square & Shab Row, Frederick, Maryland, opened its doors this fall to a new design and savory fall menu. This new restaurant and wine bar, located between 2nd and 3rd Streets, hosts more than 400 varieties of wine from around the world in addition to 55 imported and local beers. The wine and beer selections tantalize the taste buds and take each guest back to Provence.
In every day French life, it is the bistro that is woven into the daily pattern of meals and celebrations. Chef Michael King welcomes guests to embrace a true French dining experience at Shab Row Bistro. The bistro is that little neighborhood restaurant where they know who you are, greet you warmly and serve you delicious fare that changes with the seasons and defines regional, homey French cuisine. The smells, tastes and textures of France have relocated right here in Frederick, MD. A passion that flows out from the kitchen through the bar to suffuse the bistro introduces guests to Chef King’s favorite French regions. From harmonizing wine pairings with entrées that will send one’s palette into orbit, to offering an inspired wine list in the wine bar and shop, Shab Row Bistro creates a memory fusing French flair with local ingredients. Among the choices are jumbo lump crab cake paired with 2007 Xavier Monnot, Le Limouzin Premier Cru, Mersault and rack of lamb paired with 2005 Martin Cendoya, Rioja Reserve, Spain.
If lighter bistro fare is what you desire, then indulge in a cheese plate debuting robust, mild and blue selections from local, French and Spanish dairy farms. No ingredient is overlooked as the chef structures the menu to reflect the freshest of field, farm and sea.
“When we were putting together our wine program, we decided that we really like small producers who are producing exceptional quality wine at great prices.
