The first one with the kitchen in the corner. It gives more space for dining and a better kitchen layout. The second choice looks cramped. If you need a separate seating area like you have in option two, you can use the sunroom most of the year. I would omit the built in window seat and desk in the NE corner and use furniture in case you decide you want to borrow the space later for something else: landing strip, more dining room, or more living room.

YoungMrsW has the right idea with placement to create a "TV/fireplace viewing area" and an entryway area. I also second the no-tv-over-the-fireplace, my fiance has a 42" and told me I'll never be allowed to place it over one. The angle is poor for viewing and puts a crick in your neck.
