The Left Bank joins the Eastern Shore in this familial bistro. Owners Phil and Sue Stein installed Parisian ambience into a century-old house, with marble-topped tables, a zinc bar, and walls with mirrors and vintage posters. The seasonal menu created by chef David Stein, their son, fuses French provincial, Mediterranean, and regional Maryland flavors with savory starters such as sweet corn and crab chowder and a chilled peach soup with a dollop of Greek yogurt, cucumber relish, and honey-chipotle sauce. When crab is in season, don't miss the lemon-pepper soft-shells with succotash and country bacon, or the broiled crab cake with corn and Cheddar polenta and tasso ham. Though wine pairings are sometimes suggested for each course, it's tempting to cast off with a Chesapeake martini: vodka, gold tequila, Clamato juice, a dash of Tabasco and horseradish, all of it garnished with…a shrimp. This is a dinner-for-two place, though the formal upstairs loft can accommodate larger groups. There is also seating on the front porch, but be warned that traffic on Talbot Street, the town's main drag, can be busy on summer weekends. With just 75 dining room seats and an eight-seat raw bar, reservations are suggested.

Open Thursdays through Mondays from 5:30 pm.
