New waterfront restaurant opens in Westmoreland

One of the nation’s top chefs has opened at new waterfront restaurant at Cole’s Point in Westmoreland County. The Landing restaurant opened at Cole’s Point Marina on the Potomac River on May 1 and is getting high marks for its menu.

Featuring seafood delicacies like shellfish corn chowder, roasted shrimp with garlic, grilled salmon, shrimp

with linguini and crab cakes along with old standards including beef tenderloin tips, smoked chicken and freshly baked, hand formed pizza, Chef Troy Clayton has already earned a steady stream of loyal customers.

“The Landing, and my dedicated team, aspire to be the best dining destination on the Potomac, offering great food, friendly attentive service in what is without question one of the most beautiful settings on the ‘rivah’,” Clayton said.

Clayton has been honored as one of the country’s top culinary talents in the 2013 inaugural edition of Best Chefs America. The book is a first-ever peer review guide of U.S. chefs, who were chosen to be highlighted in the publication after extensive interviews of fellow chefs and culinary analysts.

“I was thrilled to be nominated by my peers and included in Best Chefs America,” Clayton said. “This recognition is truly an honor and gives me yet another reason to be appreciative of my fellow professionals and chosen profession.”

In addition to The Landing, Clayton is also the chef and owner of Geranio restaurant in Old Town Alexandria, an intimate Italian restaurant he opened on King Street in 1998. The cooking and the ambiance of both restaurants reflect Clayton’s long experience as a chef in the U.S.and in Europe. Clayton has served as a chef in several fashionable and popular restaurants in Italy, France and England.

Clayton decided to open his Westmoreland County restaurant after discussions with his long time friend Taylor Burke, an Alexandria banker who purchased Cole’s Point Marina last year. “He brought me to Cole’s Point and the Northern Neck about a year ago and I fell in love with it,” Clayton said.

“It took some time to put all the pieces together, but we signed a lease in March and opened in May. I have been a boater for 20 years and have always wanted a waterfront restaurant,” Clayton said. “My dream is to be able to come and enjoy the restaurant and the river on my own boat.”

If Clayton comes to his new restaurant by boat, he won’t be alone. There is ample dock space at the restaurant and it already has become a well-known stop for boaters on the Potomac River. With its delicious menu, an expansive deck and an outside bar with music on the weekends, The Landings is the new hot spot on the water.

“Everything is wonderful,” said Susan Spencer, who travels to the restaurant from Culpeper where she is a realtor. Spencer and her husband, Hunter, dock their boat “Run Away” at the marina. “The restaurant has great food.”

Spencer said on most mornings “before 11:30” visitors to The Landing can watch up to 30 wild dolphins as they put on a happy-go-lucky water show in the Potomac for boaters arriving at the restaurant and the marina. “It’s a wonderful thing to watch.”

The Landing is open Wednesday and Thursday at 5 p.m., Friday and Saturday at Noon and Sunday at 11 a.m. It is located at 307 Plantation Drive, Coles Point, VA 22442. The phone is: 804.472.5528 and the restaurant’s email is: This email address is being protected from spambots.
