Loudoun Destination Restaurant. At the entrance to Grandale Farm a rustic hay wagon displays the name of the restaurant, boldly painted on its side, and proudly announcing your entrance into a working farm. Don’t let the unassuming exterior fool you, though - this is elegant country dining with food as fresh as it gets. Chef Author Clark, classically trained at the Culinary Institute of America, describes his fare as American Haute Cuisine, and it earns that lofty designation. His skillful preparation makes the freshness and quality of the food the star of the plate. Chef Author plans the gardens to build his seasonal menu which runs from October through mid-April. The farm grows 80% of the produce on the menu and prides itself on preparing the entire menu in-house. The restaurant’s fresh and local commitment is carried over to the wine list, featuring an offering from every Loudoun winery on the list. Guests are encouraged to walk around the farm, and in-season, dine in one of the outdoor pergolas or on the 32-seat deck. The dining room is simple but elegant. The wood tables are dressed in white linen, classic white china, and rustic heavy banded flatware; a variety of orchids in large porcelain vases are placed in the corners of the restaurant; and local art hangs on the walls. One end of the dining room features a Mexican tiled, wood burning fireplace framed by locally made iron work. The other end offers a glimpse into the kitchen through a window, for those who want to watch the chef in action.
