Lovettsville | Modern American | $$$

The menu is a little all over the place at Market Table Bistro. There are Southern influences and Asian influences and farm-to-table influences and, where to start? Does everything look good?

The bistro board is a way to dive into the many veins pulsing through this charming restaurant in still-sleepy downtown Lovettsville. The board is crowded with options like gazpacho shooters and a pile of mussels and deviled eggs and housemade charcuterie. There’s bread service, too.

The starter is a generous display, but keep going. A duo of pork belly steamed buns in a Thai chili glaze can complete the meal, but better yet, just go for it. A full entree of delicately cooked scallops, partnered with crispy kale, is an elegant ending in a post-pastoral setting. // 13 E. Broad Way, Lovettsville
