Gold Cup Wine Bar, Middleburg, VA

Gold Cup Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: For a gastronomic and visual treat, take a field trip to the Salamander Resort & Spa in Middleburg, a destination that houses a number of amenities to please a well-heeled clientele. Of these, its Gold Cup Wine Bar, which serves as a casual restaurant and a cocktail lounge, is an ideal place to eat well without the formality and expense of the dining room. Thanks to the insight of the resort's executive chef, Ryan Arensdorf, even Gold Cup's abbreviated menu stars dishes from hush puppies and a charcuterie board to entrées of shrimp and grits and the Salamander burger with Ayrshire Farm Angus beef. Because the chefs insist on using seasonal ingredients --- many of the herbs and vegetables come from their own gardens --- the menu does undergo changes. For dessert, you can ask to be seated in the main room to sip your espresso and dig into the pastry chef's creations. You can also indulge your drinks cravings by choosing from a list of cocktails and local wine. Whatever you find on offer, be sure to sit back and be pampered in this luxurious setting.
