A Great Bowl Of Soup & A Good Salad In a 200 Year Old Room

At Tuscarora Mill in Leesburg which is a Wine Spectator Award winning restaurant in a 200+ year old wood beamed and wood and brick panelled wall room restored from the 18th Century. The formal restaurant is very good but yesterday my wife and I stopped knowing that they have a very warm, comfortable "tavern" in the front of the restaurant which served exemplery salads, soups and first courses. The cream of corn chowder was even better than from memory. With a 50-50 mix of heavy whipping cream and light cream along with freshly shucked corn and toasted onion this was an incredibly rich and flavorful bowl of soup. Homemade stock, real depth of flavor. Just superb. Arguably the best bowl of cream soup of ANY kind in the entire D. C. area. With one of five or six very good salads to follow for anyone driving in Loudoun County, looking for a place to have a light meal, or even just a light dinner and a glass of wine this is a wonderful spot. Especially the goat cheese and field greens salads which features a medallion of goat cheese that is lightly battered and deep fried.
