One Loudoun Named One of the Top Neighborhoods in Northern Virginia

One Loudoun has been recognized by the region’s premier real estate agents as one of the most sought after communities in Northern Virginia by Northern Virginia Magazine. In the article, Robyn Burdett, an associate broker with Re/Max Living says,  “The idea of One Loudoun that’s tempting buyers is that you can park your car and walk everywhere.” Described as “Loudoun County’s downtown, the article also mentions One Loudoun’s long list of restaurants, the renowned Summer Concert Series, other features, and new additions such as the Barnes & Noble which opened a few months ago. The mix of our urban-style downtown with tons of family-friendly outdoor amenities and new homes from two amazing builders makes One Loudoun something to talk about!

Sterling Restaurant Supply: A Real Life #KitchenGoals Pinterest Board

You know the feeling of culinary inspiration to get your dinner game on point after watching an episode (or entire season) of Top Chef? Yes, you know — the one that prompted you to put on your chef’s hat that you haven’t worn in years and try a new recipe that Gordon Ramsey would LOVE! That feeling. Even if your meal ended up being surprisingly delicious based on your history in the kitchen, we would guess that it did not look anything like what you saw on TV.

Enter: Sterling Restaurant Supply. But be warned, you may need supervision from a friend when you enter the store because it will feel like you’re in a real life Pinterest board labeled “#kitchengoals”.

The SRS showroom floor was giving us all of the #fallfeels.

 

Before we go into our time at Sterling Restaurant Supply, let’s set the record straight with a few important points. Sterling Restaurant Supply is a company of Fortessa Tableware Solutions and has a storefront that is open to the public right here in One Loudoun. The space next door is a Fortessa Tableware Solutions showroom just for commercial customers to shop by appointment only. Now, let’s move into our experience at SRS and why we wish we could say, “Four of everything please!”

(Check out the photo for a peek into the Fortessa Tableware Solutions Commercial Showroom!)

We think the most effective way of giving you the important stuff without giving everything away is to tell you 3 reasons why Sterling Restaurant Supply is the coolest tableware store we have ever been to.

Building Exterior and A Peek Into the Commercial Showroom

 

Reason #1: There is something for everyone

As we learned from our time speaking with Fortessa Tableware Solutions CEO Scott Hamberger and the SRS team, the store rarely sees a customer walk in and walk out without purchasing at least one item. Because, let’s be honest, who doesn’t love food? Whether it is an entertainer who finally found the perfect wine glasses to impress their weekend guests or someone who has been looking for a wedding gift to give to a sushi connoisseur, you will find something here, and you will love it.

Nothing stole our hearts faster than these tiny leaf-shaped plates. Is it just us or is this table setting bringing some serious Thanksgiving vibes to your Next Level Home?

This chic dinner party setting doesn’t need any other reason to exist besides the fact that it makes us feel fancy and sophisticated.

Reason #2: There are unique pieces that you can’t find anywhere else.

Want a variety of taco stands to choose from for Taco Tuesday just like Uncle Julio’s? They have it. If you want to serve your coffee creamer out of a cow (because who wouldn’t?), they have that too. If you’re really interested to see how one-of-a-kind some of these pieces are, slink around the corner of the FTS showroom and if you look inside the large glass windows, you might just see someone sitting at a pottery wheel. Note: this person can also see you, so don’t do anything weird.

Cloud Terre Studio is a pottery design studio, also a Fortessa Tableware Solutions company, where Scott introduced us to founder Amber Kendrick who creates exquisitely designed tableware collections for global clients like The Ritz-Carlton. But lucky for you, anyone can purchase some amazing pieces from Cloud Terre in the SRS store here at One Loudoun!

 

Reason #3: You can buy the same tools as gourmet chefs, but use them in your everyday life.

As fate would have it, Copperwood Tavern’s Executive Chef, James Duke, arrived at SRS before an appointment in the showroom next door, and we asked him to accompany us to the “Chefs Essentials” section for proof that he uses the exact tools sold in the store. It went something like this:

“What products in this section do you use?”, we asked, hoping that we would uncover a new truth like the end of every Game of Thrones episode.

Chef first pointed to a hand grater and said, “We can never have enough of these because we always lose them,” leading us to wonder how a kitchen constantly loses hand graters (the jury is still out on this one).

Okay, he got us there, but moving on. “It’s funny, I told my sous chef to pick up one of these today, but I could have just bought it here,” he said about another item.

Then came the big one when he said, “We have about 50 of these. Really… everything here!” MYTH. BUSTED.

The same chefs who make us salivate over a mere Instagram photo of their gourmet dishes (we’re talking to you Copperwood), come here to hand pick each tableware piece to provide unforgettable dining experiences. Where the front of the house meets the back of the house, you will find the same exact tools that culinary experts use around the world!


SRS “Back of the House” section

 

I can tell you that after our visit, the next time we enter SRS, I will be running, not walking, to purchase a few items that I can’t stop thinking about (Cough, cough, a tilted wine carafe and matte-pink plates). Fortessa Tableware Solutions also has a really cool story attached it, but we won’t discuss right now since it would take a full hour, which is why Scott told us that they had to turn it into a video for new hires to watch. But as we know from hearing many a story, if it takes an hour to tell, it has got to be a good one!

So head on over to Sterling Restaurant Supply and get to know this wonderful company who have moved their way into the One Loudoun family! And finally, we raise you a royal blue Cloud Terre plate to your first-apartment thrift shop dining set! Bon appetit One Loudouners!

The One Loudoun Farmer’s Market and Artisan Fair: The ONE Way to Start Every Weekend

The One Loudoun Farmer’s Market and Artisan Fair got the best of us on a crisp fall Saturday morning, where “I’m just going to look around” turned into “Will I be able to fit everything into the car?” Like a dog seeing a squirrel, each step provided a new distraction and more things we needed to take home. Wow that granola looks amaz- OOH pumpkins! I can’t wait to carve – OMG they have fresh cut flowers! Wait… is that a real baby cow?

There were so many questions and warm and fuzzy feelings going on at once it was difficult to contain the excitement. Spoiler: we weren’t the only ones who were excited to be there.

 

Hello friends, and welcome to the one thing you will be looking forward to every single weekend from now on. When was the last time you went somewhere and thought that was how you wanted every weekend to start off? If your answer is “not in a while”, you probably have not been to the One Loudoun Farmer’s Market and Artisan Fair. Together, they are like a miniature fall festival, sans apple-bobbing and hayrides (but don’t be shocked if they have those also). These markets run YEAR ROUND, but we just happened to visit during our favorite season.

If you have children, be sure to bring them with you on your visit because it’s the perfect place for an Insta-worthy family outing, and to keep them entertained for at least an hour or so. The energetic atmosphere of live music, sweet smells of baked goods, live animals (see photos) and chatter of neighbors is enough to brighten anyones day, even if they’re going through the terrible twos!

Baby Cow, Toddler and Chickens

 

Of all of the weekends we could have chosen to visit this playground of produce, today was the pie baking contest. We tried about 15 different types of pies before 10:30am and even got to vote for our favorites. If this is what Saturday mornings were like for the rest of time, we would be okay with it. Breakfast of champions!

 

Baby Cow, Toddler and Chickens

Put some heart and soul back into your home-cooked meals by picking up locally grown seasonal produce. 10/10, we would highly recommend getting some kind of squash (tis the season) and whipping up a nice hearty soup, or even a roasted veggie spread on top of your favorite protein. Just looking back at this rainbow of vegetables makes us want to grow our own, but we will leave that to the pros.

 

Not only is there produce at the markets, there are also a large assortment of sweet treats, meats, snacks, baked goods, artisanal gifts and more! Here are just a few that sparked our fancy:

 

In the middle of the farmer’s market, we could not help but stop in awe at a large wooden stand of glittery homemade soaps and an entire stack of shelves filled with bath bombs. These handmade products make the perfect guest bathroom accent or a gift that says, “I love you and also want you to smell great.”

If you are feeling like you don’t know where to begin for your holiday shopping, this is a holiday-lovers paradise. At this one stop shop, you can order your Thanksgiving turkey from a local farm, pick up one-of-a-kind handmade gifts for everyone on your list, and begin to plan out the entire menu for your annual holiday dinner party. Plus, there is something new every week at the Artisan Fair, like these adorable Halloween wreaths.

Glittery Soaps, Homemade Wreaths and Bathroom Accents

 

One of the most delightful parts about the One Loudoun markets was that it felt like a big family reunion – like Oprah was there saying, “You get a hug and you get a hug!” Within minutes of being there, we heard hellos and how are yous left and right. Although it felt like everyone there already knew each other, people started coming up to us too, curious about the camera we had in tow and asking if we had tried a specific type of pie yet. First timers will not feel left out for a second.

One of the reasons there is so much hype around farmer’s markets to begin with is that they are inspiring. Exploring a market featuring vendors and people who live where you do truly makes a community feel like a home. So, before you even think about sleeping in too late this Saturday, get out of bed, bring your favorite coffee or tea from Starbucks, and meet us at the One Loudoun Farmer’s Market and Artisan Fair.

5 Things That Happen When You Go to The Carnival at One Loudoun

As we approached the front entrance to what would be our playground for the next few hours, sensory overdrive ensued as we crossed through the threshold of ticket booths and a rush of adrenaline followed. Lights, laughter, and that familiar carousel tune. This is it. We were finally here and about to enjoy (hopefully) one of the great American pastimes right here in One Loudoun: The Carnival.

Because we want to prepare you for your time at The Carnival, here are 5 things that are sure to happen during an evening under the hotdog signs.

 

1. You will look absolutely ridiculous on the rides

The hair will be flying everywhere, you will laugh uncontrollably, and you might even lose a flip-flop if you aren’t careful. With your besties by your side, it won’t even matter until you see the photos that your friend, who is “not a ride person,” took from the ground. But trust us; throwing your inhibitions to the wind are necessary to fully engulf yourself in the carnival ride experience.

2. It will shakeup your date night

Smiling? Laughing? What is this craziness?! Do yourself a favor and skip the weekly Netflix date and opt for something more, well, FUN. Whether crushing your significant other in a game of mini-hoops or hanging onto their arm for dear life at the top of the ferris wheel, there’s no doubting that the carnival will make you feel as carefree and playful as when you were kids. Come on over to The Carnival and have a date Danny and Sandy style. Ah, summer lovin’.

3. #TreatYoself is an all day motto

Fried Oreos? Sure. Corn dogs the size of your arm? Why not. Be prepared to indulge in the finest carnival cuisine you’ve ever laid eyes on. Pro tip: have each of your friends get something different so you can have a taste of each without getting full to the point of no return(ing to the rides).

4. You’ll make memories to last a lifetime

It’s the moment of truth. Your little one gets on a carnival ride for the first time ever. The uncertain expression on their face fades as the ride starts to move and there it is: a smile finally forms as they feel the pure bliss of flying for the first time. You can’t help but take about 234 photos during the next minute of cuteness overload, and immediately realize you’re going to need more photo storage on your phone this summer.

5. You realize you’ll be back

When the kids hop back into the minivan to go home, faces covered in chocolate sauce and limbs hanging heavy from exhaustion, you will surely hear them plotting their itinerary for the next visit… which they innocently expect will be tomorrow. If you came with your significant other or gaggle of girlfriends, you now have a foolproof destination for a summer evening of letting loose and having fun.

Friends on Merry-go-round

Take it from us; the carnival is a ONE of a kind experience, and will be one of the best days of your summer. As you can see, it also makes for some amazing photo ops. The Carnival is coming back from August 16-27 by popular demand, so schedule your next night out right here at One Loudoun.

Solebrity wins Loudoun Tech. Company Of The Year!

Friday November 6, 2015 Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce awarded One Loudoun based Solebrity “Technology Business Of the Year 2015”.

A one-year young, social shopping company started by AJ Jaghori and Chris Petrakis and based on the technology developed at The Social Genome Project, Solebrity is now being touted as the fastest growing startup in the newly revived “Silicon Valley East” movement. The company boasts over 20,000 early adopters including millenials, noteable designers, fashion figures, and celebrities and has 1.4 million products in it’s catalog with reach to 2 million social shoppers. The iPhone and Android apps are privately being distributed to early adopters and have been in beta since August. The company plans to launch publically in December.

Solebrity’s technology enables the application to think on behalf of the user leveraging data science algorithms, consumer science and real-time input from a shopper’s network of friends. Solebrity tailors recommendations to each shopper’s unique style and personality to accurately deliver the right products at the right time and at the right price; thus creating a personalized, effective experience.

A portmanteau of “social” and “celebrity,” the app works to channel a shopper’s social capital or “influence” over their networks into purchases and shares half of its earned revenue directly with the shopper that influenced the purchase. “Our app wisely recognize the power of ego in social shopping and allows shoppers to build their following, create personal collections, and become influential fashionistas akin to the average Joe and Jane becoming Instagram Famous.” says CEO AJ Jaghori.

An Instagram-like interface allows shoppers to recommend items, although instead of ‘liking’, users ‘endorse’ a piece of clothing, uniting a brand’s enviable e-commerce capabilities with a social function that encourages more sharing and spending. One of Solebrity’s founding principles is social good; both founders come from humble beginnings and have strong community ties. The company donates 1% of every transaction to charity and makes this process simple and transparent for the shopper. To date, 323 charities have signed up.

Solebrity plans to continue adding brands and expanding into the pets, houseware, and electronics marketplaces, which will be aided by the company’s Smart Watch and Virtual Reality Shopping applications in the near future.
