As a small, local business, we are committed to supporting our neighbors. Our meals are better because of our local farmers. Our restaurant is more beautiful because of our local artists. We are more environmentally friendly because of our Wine On Tap and filtered water systems.
AIDA Bistro & Wine Bar will always be an active contributor to our community. We proudly support Howard County Chamber of Commerce, Howard County Tourism, Gilchrist Hospice of Howard County, The ARC of Howard County, Claudia Mayer/Tina Broccolino Cancer Resource Center at Howard Hospital, Restaurant Association of Maryland, and the Artists’ Gallery of Columbia, to name a few.
Farm to Table
AIDA Bistro & Wine Bar uses fresh and local products from farmers who farm sustainably and organically. During the season, all herbs are locally grown either by local farmers or in co-owners Joe and Mary’s backyard garden.
We support Larriland Farms, Sharp Farm, Clark Elioak Farm, Love Dove Farm & Zahradka Farm and believe that the freshness of their products translates into a great dining experience for you. For example, our caprese salad, made with locally grown tomatoes, our homemade mozzarella and garden fresh basil is only served in season and is unparalleled. Our stuffed squash blossoms, available only in late summer to early fall, are highly sought after.
Come in and taste the difference for yourself!
Our Wine On Tap initiative not only provides you with the freshest tasting wine available, but also helps keep our environment clean. For each wine keg that is filled, we save 25 bottles, corks /enclosures, wine labels and various packaging materials from the landfill. In addition, we recycle the kegs, sending them back to the winery to refill with the next varietal or vintage. So, have another glass of our Wine On Tap and help out our environment!
Filtered Water System
All of our water is filtered and refrigerated on premise eliminating the need for costly bottles. We are able to offer our guests the option of either still or sparkling water.
Not only do we want you to enjoy the freshest food and wine but we also want you to enjoy your entire experience at AIDA Bistro & Wine Bar. Throughout our dining rooms, we proudly display local artists’ work on the walls. In order to support our local artists and keep your cultural experience fresh, we rotate the artwork on a quarterly basis. These pieces are available for purchase at any time.
