EAT FRESH. EAT LOCAL
As our name suggests, Bay Local was established with the local community in mind. We like to describe our culinary style as "Coastal Southern," taking advantage of everything our region on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay has to offer. As the seasons change, so do our specials or "fresh-ials," as we've dubbed them. During the summer months, we serve hand-picked crab meat and freshly shucked oysters from Virginia's Eastern Shore as well as freshly picked strawberries from Pungo. The winter's offerings include collard greens, kale and broccoli from local farmers. We pride ourselves in making everything fresh and in-house every day while never pulling anything out of a bag and putting it into a fryer.
Bay Local’s menu was inspired from a collection of family recipes, local favorites, and some of our own favorite dishes. Our coastal inspired menu draws a huge influence from the Chesapeake Bay and surrounding area. Carefully put together with our guests’ palate in mind.
Owner Adrian Colaprete has spent years living and working on the waters in our coastal bay region, forming relationships with local fisherman and chefs alike. It's with great pleasure that he and his wife Whitney are able to share with you their passion for great food, style and local culture.
