Located almost right at the end of the W& OD Trail and housed in the refurbished flour mill, Magnolias at the Mill has an old Loudoun style to it with wooden beams and remnants of its old function remaining as part of the décor. It’s part of what makes Magnolias such an integral part of Purcellville’s downtown.
Even so, this nod to the past doesn’t extend to the food – which remains contemporary and delicious.
The appetizer was a sight to behold. Defying expectations, these Cuban nachos were actually crispy plantains used to spoon up a tasty concoction of slow roasted pork, black beans and cilantro cream. Chiles add an extra kick, but the entire dish was certainly enjoyable.
Having had their burgers before, I can testify to their good taste, but I decided to up the ante for this trip to Magnolias and sat down to the all natural New York strip steak.
It wasn’t a bad choice at all, tender and savory. I had every intention of taking some home, but found myself unable to stop. It was topped off with a peppercorn sauce that made it all the better.
The steak was served with roasted garlic whipped potatoes and tender asparagus.
