Welcome to my restaurant, One Block West, punnily named because it sits a block west of Winchester’s downtown pedestrian mall. Hi, I’m Ed Matthews, chef and owner of this small, friendly restaurant that is an extension of my home. Many of our regular customers simply call the restaurant “Ed’s.” I like having my friends over to dinner.
The dining room is quaint, romantic, and comfortable with widely spaced tables set elegantly with burgundy table linens, large white napkins, heavy flatware, English china, fresh flowers, candles, and fine Italian stemware. But it’s not a formal space. So, please dress comfortably, relax, and let us take care of you.
People often ask me what kind of food we serve. I call it sensational seasonal cuisine™, which is marketing speak for fine dining (dishes and ingredients you wouldn’t do at home) that showcases the finest products from local purveyors. My cooking is about a place, the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and a time, right now.
