The wood-fired oven at this Courthouse hot spot is getting more of a workout than ever with the arrival of new chef Thomas Harvey. When it’s roaring, the oven turns out crispy, thin crusts with locally sourced toppings such as sausage from Lothar’s in Purcellville and ham from Baker’s Farm in Mt. Jackson.  Creative pies include the Smokey Blue (gorgonzola, bacon, onions, rosemary, balsamic glaze) and the Black Sheep (lamb sausage, feta, tomatoes, spinach, onions). Plus, the hefty craft beer selection — which includes 31 drafts, two casks and 150 bottled brews — promises something tasty to wash it all down. A forthcoming renovation of the restaurant’s patio promises a lively new spot for dining al fresco.
