Main Street Catering & Brasserie

1/27/11 Main Street Catering & Brasserie really is a family affair. There’s Lee (that’s me). I’m the mom. Many around the area knew my grandfather, Dr. George M. Darrow (aka Papa Darrow), who owned the Pick-Your-Own strawberry farm in Glenn Dale. He used to say with such glee, I can’t believe I get paid to raise strawberries and daylilies.
