Restaurant at Patowmack Farm
Destination Restaurant. "Think of it as 1,000 star restaurant," says Beverly Morton Billand, owner of The Restaurant at Patowmack Farm. Housed in a glass conservatory overlooking the Potomac River, you can certainly see 1,000 stars on a clear night. Location alone makes Patowmack a unique dining experience. After driving along the Potomac River, climb the farm’s gravel driveway up the hillside. The natural landscape of the farm creates the atmosphere. The glass-walled conservatory that houses the restaurant is simple in décor, allowing the outdoors to be the focus as the structure intends. Go early or for Sunday brunch and enjoy the open doors letting in fresh air and sunshine. Stay late to enjoy the sunset and watch the moon and stars rise over the mountain. Chef Christopher Edwards has studied under highly esteemed chefs including globally recognized Chef Ferran Adria who restaurant, El Bulli, has earned three Michelin stars. In his talented hands, Patowmack Farm’s organic foods are transformed into gastronomic works of art that come to life on your palate. He changes the menu monthly and makes daily adjustments based on what the gardens are producing. A late winter visit treated us with a starter of roasted baby turnip wrapped in "Surryano" ham (Serrano style ham from a farm in Surry, Virginia). Another dish of pork belly from Loudoun’s Ayrshire Farm was braised to fork tenderness, served with a mild grilled winter radish kimchi, trumpet royale mushrooms, the first of the garden sorrel, and Rappahannock River oysters. Desserts live up to expectations after such a delightful meal. Lemon cheesecake is velvety smooth yet light, topped with lemon curd and candied citrus, accompanied by spongy génoise cake and cinnamon syrup.
