About French Hound Brasserie

After 10 years in the beautiful horse county side nestled in the quaint village of Middleburg the French Hound, owned and operated by John-Gustin and Marny Birkitt, has decided to boldly close their doors and reopen at 19286 Promenade Drive, in Lansdowne Town Center, Leesburg Virginia. The new larger space will obviously accommodate more of our patrons but still, our French Bistro Brasserie inspired fair will continue to please our former patrons as well we hope to delight new palates of local Leesburg residents

  • We used to dine at the Hound in Middleburg and finally got to try John’s new digs in Leesburg. Everything we had (gaspacho, escargots, pork flat iron, lobster risotto) was absolutely delicious. I liked the decor. Not as romantic as the old school house setting in Middleburg but quite nicely done for a brasserie atmosphere… and great bar!
    Warm, personal welcome back from the chef and very efficient and friendly staff.
    All in all a great restaurant for quality food outing!
