Sometimes it pays to read the local fishwraps closely.
There is an ad in the latest Middleburg Eccentric for the Aster Restaurant, to open this fall, in the former Black Coffee Bistro location at 101 S. Madison St. They have a one-page website already -- the overwrought prose is a bit scary. As is the chef's name: Hump Astorga.
I get the sense this place will be aiming for the moneyed guests at the Salamander Inn, which jumped another big hurdle recently.
