New to Historic Downtown Leesburg

Downtown Leesburg’s King St

They say everything old is new again and the historic downtown section of Leesburg is proof of just that.  I’ve always had a soft spot for historic small towns and watching the resurgence happening in Leesburg’s character filled downtown area has been amazing! Amidst established favorites like Lightfoot, Black Shutter antiques and The Wine Kitchen it seems like there is a new shop, restaurant or brewery opening every few weeks.

The first U.S. Outpost for Delirium beer opened a cafe this summer on the corner of King

and Loudoun St. Known for their Belgium brews be sure to stop by for a waffle or grab a sandwich and enjoy the outside seating in the beer garden.

Also on South King St. and brand new to the Leesburg scene is Bites grilled cheese and wine bar. Expect to see creative grilled cheese combos, cheese boards and salads on the menu along with wine and cocktails.

Seafood lovers have a new option after Captain Catoctins Crabs and Concoctions opened in July and joined the King Street Oyster Bar in offering delicious regionally sourced sea fare.

No matter which adult beverage you prefer, Downtown Leesburg has you covered. In addition to great spots for wine (The Wine Kitchen, Chimole and  the Leesburg Vintner) you can now try small batch tequila and craft beers in the heart of town.  Black Walnut Brewery and Black Hoof Brewing launched in recent months and the early reviews have been positive.  Cocina on Market opened their doors in August and features Mexican food, street tacos and tequila flights.

Coming To Village at Leesburg

Often referred to as the “Wegman’s shopping center” or “The one with the theatre”, the Village at Leesburg development just off Route 7 is adding more tenants and opening new dining options this Summer and Fall.

Set to open any day now is the latest location of Fratured Prune Doughnuts. Known  by many for the fresh doghnuts and long lines at the Ocean City, MD beach area locations, you can soon bring a taste of the beach home without the pain of traffic on the bridge!

Also coming soon is Noku sushi. You may remember Noku from their previous location in Lansdowne Town Center.

An opening date has not been set but construction progress, including the recent addition of the outdoor sign, is being made on Shanghai Stations just next door to the Cobb movie theatre.  The menu is being described as Asian French Fusion and certainly has an upscale feel.

In case you missed it, earlier this summer the King Pinz bowling alley/restaurant changed owners and names. Now Bowlero, they still offer bowling, big screen tvs and a full service dining experience.

Don’t forget that the Village at Leesburg is often the site of special events like the upcoming Great Grapes Wine Festival or October’s  Beer, Bourboun & BBQ festival.
