Pouring Glory: Craft Beer for Novices and Experts Alike

Even though it just opened in December, Pouring Glory is already earning raves for its stellar craft beer and food. About 10 minutes away from Villas of Oak Hill, Pouring Glory is billed as a growler filling station, but the fare and atmosphere make it so much more than that.

Speaking of its fare, some favorite dishes include the brisket nachos with queso, the Phili sandwich with beer-based sauce, and the blackened shrimp tacos. Some menu options change daily based on the whim of the head chef and which ingredients are available. The beer comes from local microbrewers, like the Collective Brewing Project.

The knowledgeable and friendly staff is committed to pleasing all guests. They’ll help guide novices to a beer they’ll love, and dive deep with beer aficionados to find a new favorite. They are very generous with samples, too, and let you try as many as you’d like.

Sip local spirits at Acre Distilling, a new spot that is only 10 minutes from the Villas of Oak Hill.

Common Ground Grill and Tap: Burgers, Seafood and More

Quail and waffles with sweet chili syrup. Crispy chicken puffs with leeks and chimichurri sauce. Grilled artichoke hearts with piquillo puree, bacon, and goat cheese. These are some of the upscale appetizers you can expect to encounter at Common Ground Grill and Tap, a New American restaurant that opened six weeks ago about three miles from Villas of Oak Hill.

For the main course, dig into something more filling, like the Common burger. It features eight ounces of Akaushi Japanese beef, topped with smoked cheddar cheese, tomatoes, arugula, and pickled onions. Entrees include pan-seared shrimp with red chile polenta and sunflower chimichurri, grilled chicken with a sage reduction, and chorizo-stuffed quail, but save some room. You will probably want to try one of the desserts, perhaps the brandy cake with vanilla ice cream, a dash of orange zest, and a pinch of salt.

FW Market + Table: Come for Brunch

If you recently resolved to eat healthier, you might be worried that your diet is about to consist solely of salads and veggie burgers. Chef Kalen of FW Market + Table isn't satisfied with that type of rabbit food diet. She and her team know that healthy food can taste and look good, and it can extend beyond the scope of salads. That's why she opened FW Market + Table three months ago, about 10 minutes from Villas of Oak Hill.

It contains two distinct restaurants: the Market and the Table. The Market promises consistently fresh fare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that looks relatively similar from day to day—though the menu is so large and eclectic that you won't really have to eat the same thing twice. The Table, on the other hand, is where Chef Kalen and her team get creative using fresh, seasonal ingredients and their imagination. That menu changes all the time. Regardless of which eatery you visit, most locals say you should come for brunch, especially if avocado toast or banana pancakes sound good to you.
