About the restaurant


Osteria 177 is the ultimate expression of an Italian tavern where the main attraction is imported delicacies of one-of-a-kind food and wine. Adorned by barreled wine, an Osteria would never lack the sought out local specialties, spices, cheeses, fish or meats. It was here that many people tried to alleviate life's stresses by numbering themselves with good food, good wine, and good company. The owner/chef of the Osteria would take the utmost pride in stocking these praised elements as the basis for mouthwatering meals, a delicious dance-for-all of the five senses. This is the basis for Osteria 177.

About the restaurant
Water for Chocolate provides an intimate and savory experience with a nod to personal space and service.
Chef Sean Guy and his team prepares creative dishes using seasonal ingredients with the best of intentions.
The result is a fresh, eclectic take on comfort food that elevates the familiar to wow!!
Pairings with "holistic cocktails" such as the house brewed ginger beer and a selected wine portfolio allows for guests to create real dining memories.

Dining Bar
Easton
About the restaurant
The Stewart is an intimate bar-and-lounge in the heart of Easton, MD, with an unparalleled focus on the very finest of single malt Scotch whiskeys and vintage Champagnes. Upon entrance, guests are transported to a sphere of sheer refinement and spirit sophistication where one of the most impressive assemblages of Scotch in America is gloriously ensconced in the eloquent Federal Street enclave. An elegant evening progresses in an atmosphere of updated and distinguished Highland splendor: gleaming dark woods, handsomely refurbished period seating, gilt-framed oil paintings of Highland scenes, an intricately pargeted plaster ceiling, and, naturally, tartans galore. A crackling fire in the cooler months provides cozy ambient undertones within an 18th century walnut and brass trumeau chimney.

We had high hopes for some great Italian food and wonderful atmosphere. The high ratings gave us every indication that it was going to be a great evening. Upon entering the restaurant we were great with luke warm hello. The hostess sat immediately although we arrived early. We waited a bit for the waiter but I believe he was the only one working the area we were in. Tables are a bit close or the music wasn’t loud enough as were heard conversations from other tables. We ordered a Cesar salad which was just ok. I ordered the Ragu and my husband the filet.  My dish as lacking flavor. My husband was satisfied with his although overcooked a bit. We ordered dessert but it didn’t come. We both had drinks. When the bill came we were shocked as my husbands cocktail was $38 for one margarita and he had two (yikes!!!). We reminded the waiter that we didn’t get the dessert so he comp’d us dessert and apologized. We also let him know how we felt about the cocktail price. He was very apologetic. The best think about this restaurant was the service. For the price the food should have been better. Doubt we’ll return Sadly!

First timer at this location. Made 6:30pm reservations on OpenTable and was seated immediately. Our server, Norris, was in training, but did a good job checking in with us and providing professional service.

Easton
About the restaurant
The Wardroom is situated on a prominent corner in historic downtown Easton, Maryland, in what was formerly The Brick Hotel — considered a marvel of its time in the mid-19th century. The gastronomic, European-style shop and bistro offers handmade pastas, house-cured meats, and artisanal chocolates from top French chocolatier, La Maison du Chocolat. Both a pasta and wine bar, the Wardroom’s menu consists of authentic Italian pasta dishes, cheese and charcuterie plates customized for each guest, and seasonal salads and antipasto dishes. The basement houses an extensive wine cellar and intimate tasting room called The Locker, as well as a temperature-controlled cheese “cave,” and a kitchen where chefs produce fresh pasta each day.

Rehoboth Beach
About the restaurant
What started as a food truck concept in 2019 then became a beachside bistro in 2021. The Federal, located just a short block from the famed Rehoboth Beach boardwalk has become a full-service, beach casual, fine-dining bistro. The demure restaurant now hosts the two concepts in one space - you can enjoy fritters before dinner, for a happy hour snack, or go for a boardwalk stroll. Federal Fritter menu features a variety of crisp, poppable & snackable fritters, while The Federal menu expands on a way of eating that best defines Todd & Ellen's culinary style, the menu reads like a postcard from the Mid-Atlantic. Chef Gray pays careful attention to the seasons, honoring what the Delmarva region harvests.
