Amazing meal at this historic restaurant,

I cannot say enough about what a fantastic meal we had at this historic restaurant. The building has been around -- right in the heart of charming and historic Middleburg -- for almost 300 years (1728)! We had heard a lot about this restaurant over the years but never got around to dining there. Believe me, we will be back. This will be our new special-occasion go-to restaurant. We ate inside in the main tavern, but they also have a lovely patio (with live music on Friday nights in season). We were actually there on a Friday night and considered eating al fresco, but as we were with friends and wanted a quieter space to chat, we opted to sit inside.

There are no gluten free markings, per se, on the munus ( http://www.redfox.com/tavern/#Tavern-Menu-anchor ). However, as with most high-end restaurants with accomplished chefs, they know their stuff and can tell you what menu items are safe for Celiac/gluten free diners. I always recommend calling ahead, especially after perusing the menu online. That way, you can inquire about what sounds appetizing to you and see if it is -- or can be tweaked to be -- gluten free. We were there at the end of Loudoun County's restaurant week, the last Friday of August. They had a multi-course tasting menu. I started with the Shrimp and Grits, followed by the Date and Goat Cheese Salad, and then the Hickory Bourbon Glazed Salmon with zucchini and squash fettuccine. The first two courses are gluten free by nature, and the salmon just has to be slightly altered in its preparation. Everything was to-die-for. So much delicious food I could barely eat another bite. They also had a special on bottles of Virginia wine that night, so we opted for a nice bottle of Nebbiolo from Three Fox Vineyards. Other items that are gluten free -- or can be modified to be gluten free -- include many salads, the Crispy Half Duck entree, Seared Sea Scallops, Grilled Pork Chop, Filet Mignon, New York Strip, Ribeye, and Rack of Lamb. So you can see you will have many choices here. Again, the menu does change a bit seasonally, so peruse it online and give the restaurant a call in advance to discuss your options. Even though they don't have a printed GF Menu or mark their gluten free items on the regular menu, I really have to give this outstanding restaurant 5 palms!
