Black Market Bistro Restaurant Review: First there was Addie's in Rockville, then came Black's in Bethesda, and now this: Black Market Bistro, next in a successive generation of very trendy eateries that aim to please the inner gourmand in us all. Owned by Barbara and Jeff Black, this local restaurant group takes aim at the commuter crowd with this location. Housed right next to the MARC tracks, this reconverted and updated Victorian house with sweeping side lawns, shading trees and a tennis court is the axis for the small suburban community known as Garret Park. Black Market Bistro makes it easy on working moms and dads, and anyone else who needs a food or caffeine fix during the day, or a take-away meal at night. Brunch consists of the usual suspects: buttermilk pancakes, scrambled eggs or orange-vanilla bean french toast. But you will find sturdier fare too, such as the Black Market burger with several cheese options and the fried chicken sandwich with arugula. Dessert choices are few, but other portions are ample.
