Freshly-made, affordable food in a modern space.
204 Main Bar & Bistro is a modern restaurant serving fresh, locally-sourced food in historic Sharon Springs, New York. Located between the Beekman 1802 Mercantile and The American Hotel and established in 2011, the Bistro is the culmination of a lifelong dream for owners Jim Grinchis and Norm Phenix.Spending time with his mother in the kitchen learning to cook are some of Norm's fondest memories. It was during those times that he developed a passion for cooking and an appreciation of freshly made food using simple ingredients.
Jim found early on he had the restaurant business in his blood, honing his skills working in various restaurants in Manhattan and Boston.
204 Main Bar & Bistro uses locally-sourced ingredients whenever possible.
Join us for a glass of wine or beer, and stay for lunch or dinner.
