The Wine Kitchen Restaurant Review

: As you settle in to enjoy your meal, appreciate the arty interior of this diminutive Leesburg restaurant. Meanwhile, the work of chef Tim Rowley has elevated the menu. Keeping it simple, the focus is on gathering ingredients mainly from local artisanal purveyors and turning the goods into charcuterie, salads, seafood mains and sandwiches such as the WK crab cake with bacon. Heftier dishes include curry gnocchi, BBQ chicken, and grilled shrimp with smoked potatoes. If you want to eat light, inquire about the specials of the day. Save room for desserts such as the Key lime ice cream sandwich. The bar stocks some unusual wines, so ask for suggestions. Look for occasional wine dinners, too.
