The Wine Kitchen Restaurant Review: The Wine Kitchen brings casual wining and dining to the banks of Carroll Creek with alfresco seating. The seasonal menu captures the flavors of local ingredients, but whenever you drop by, order the chicharrones and guacamole as a starter. Luncheon sandwiches include a Mexican-style BLT sparked with guacamole and sriracha sauce, and an equally unusual Korean chicken sandwich with cucumber kimchi and fries. Sturdier eats come in the form of different steak cuts accompanied by mashed potatoes. Dinner dishes delete the sandwiches and add seafood and vegetarian entrées as well as all-meat plates of roast chicken, rack of lamb and duck breast --- plus those steak presentations. One may pair their meal with a flight of wine samplings. Sweets are farm-fresh, and you most likely won’t find the composed blackberry dessert in January. Also located at 7 S. King St., Leesburg, 703-777-9463.
