Wild Rockfish at The Kitchen.

Main Street Chestertown’s Saturday Al Fresco series continues this weekend at The Kitchen at the Imperial on High Street. The dining series is a local response to COVID-19 and has resulted in well attended outdoor epicurean events.

Steve Quigg, Chef/Owner of The Kitchen, has included Wild Rockfish on Saturday’s menu.

“The season is so short and wild striped bass makes an incredible dish,” Quigg remarked. “My preparation is all about local. Local fish, local veg straight from the farms, sauce made from the scrap of the fish. It is a dish you won’t find anyplace else.”

Music will return with funding by the Chestertown A&E District through a grant from the Md. State Arts Council.

Fredy Granillo will again perform from the Second Floor Balcony with original pieces and traditional Salvadoran string music. Granillo is a Salvadoran musician, painter and ceramist who lives in Chestertown with his wife and son. He performed with the Andean-style band Yarabi between 2003 and 2008 and became a dedicated singer-songwriter. His debut album, Todo Esta Normal (Everything is Normal), was released in 2012. He has been producing talavara ceramic pieces since 2014.

The Kitchen will start seating guests at 5 p.m. on Saturday and continue to 9. Due to chilly weather moving in, there will be limited seating inside.
