the conche

The other day, we updated you on The Conche, the new restaurant and chocolate shop coming to Village at Leesburg. (See story here.) Today, the restaurant released its menu — and it looks like a place we definitely want to go.

How about appetizers that include Chocolate Stout Beer Battered Crispy Calamari and Sirloin, Short Rib and Fried Cheese Sliders with a Smoked Chili Pepper Marmalade? Or entrees that include a Spiced Lamb Flatbread and a Cocoa Rubbed NY Strip Steak? And the desserts — Homemade Gelato, Conche Molten Chocolate Cake with Bourbon Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, and a bunch of other sweets that we can’t identify or even pronounce!

For the full menu, click here. The Conche’s owner — acclaimed chef Santosh Tiptur — says the restaurant construction is nearing completion and he’s looking forward to opening this spring.
