Dining at Salamander Resort & Spa shows off the region’s exceptional, high-quality local ingredients. Choose from three dining spots and take cooking lessons at Harrimans Cooking Studio.
Harrimans Virginia Piedmont Grill – Open for breakfast, dinner, and Sunday brunch, Harrimans Virginia Piedmont Grill celebrates the best of local produce in an elegant and relaxed atmosphere. From a 48-hour brined pork chop to pan-roasted sweetbreads and a 22-oz. prime bone-in ribeye, the menu stresses the bounty of the region. The fundamentals of their farm-to-table principle come into their own in non-meat dishes, too, with ingredients from the resort’s culinary garden, from brussel sprout Caesar to pear carpaccio and glazed Thumbelina carrots.
Gold Cup Wine Bar – A location near the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains means not only having prime ingredients available to cook with, but extraordinary wines to choose from, and Gold Cup Wine Bar offers the best of both. This relaxing, pet-friendly venue is the ideal place to taste local wines paired with delicious regional fare surrounded by staggering views of the Virginia countryside.
Market Salamander – With the sophistication of a modern gourmet market in an idyllic small-town setting, Market Salamander’s relaxing atmosphere is ideal for an indulgent breakfast or light lunch. In the village of Middleburg, a short walk from the hotel, pick from a creative breakfast, fresh sandwiches and wraps, burgers, and carefully selected picnic options to take away.
Harrimans Cooking Studio – Every Saturday afternoon, the Salamander Resort & Spa chefs host an interactive cooking class that will take you from amateur chef to fine-dining master. The chefs share their knowledge while you create items from their seasonal menus. Enjoy the fruits of your labor when the cooking studio becomes a private chef’s table for an exclusive dinner at Harrimans.
Choose Salamander Resort & Spa if you are planning an outdoor adventure, a romantic escape, or a family vacation to remember always. With the densely forested Blue Ridge Mountains as a backdrop, you can relax at the indoor and outdoor pools; enjoy tennis courts, a complimentary putting green, clay shooting, archery, and disc golf; get together with lawn games; or explore the surroundings by fishing, hiking, and cycling. The full equestrian center makes the resort a popular retreat for passionate horseback riders.
Head into the town of Middleburg and enjoy a game of golf. Or take a tour of the local wineries and museums and dig into the local wine culture and history. Let the hotel staff guide you to the best activities to make the most of your stay.
