On a recent weekend getaway to St. Michaels, Ava's was the hands down surprise winner for best dining experience...even beating out 208 Talbot, which is a fantastic restaurant. The thing that stood out was the freshness of the ingredients, which made the food sumptuous! Because the ingredients are so fresh, the fare reminded me of what I ate at local trattorias in central Italy when living there for a summer because those spots always sourced ingredients from local markets. In addition to delicious food, the beer selection was great with plenty of craft brews, and the decor had a welcoming, updated feel. FYI, Ava's doesn't take reservations, but will let you call-ahead by an hour or so and put your name on the list, which I highly recommend because this place is packed. Great spot!
