Dinning In Middleburg – Kliman Online

Posted on


Todd – My husband and I are considering a mini staycation/babymoon out at the Salamander Resort in Middleburg. The resort looks wonderful, but I dont think we want to eat on premise (eek – terrible Post write up.. have you been out?).

So the question, is there anywhere wonderful in Middleburg or even nearby you would recommend? Have you heard anything about the latest with Ashby Inn’s chef?

Todd Kliman:

What I’d do, if I were you, is book a table at Girasole, in the Plains.

It’s about an eight-mile drive south — take you about 15 minutes.

And then you’ll settle in to a cozy, soft-lit dining room for a good, relaxing meal of casual Italian cooking. It’s an enjoyable restaurant. Not a splurge of a meal kind of place, not a gastronomic getaway — but the kind of place you wish were closer to the city, because you could see yourself going once a month.
