Wine & Dine Jefferson Style Fresh Local Foods
D ining G uide
Charlottesville lies among a few beautiful counties, including Albemarle, Nelson and Orange, whose rich agricultural history and farm community are well loved and supported by our many local restaurants. Well before socalled locavores arrived in the headlines, many of our restaurants were already building their reputations on the quality of the local food they supplied to their grateful customers. Area chefs take great pride in creating memorable meals, and they also enjoy letting the artisan’s hand show through when plating locally crafted cheese, charcuterie, jam and wine. It is no exaggeration to say that local chefs and restaurateurs are friends with the growers, farmers and brewers who supply their establishments. Take note of the farms and artisanal ventures mentioned by name on menus, for you may encounter some of the people around town or find their products on the shelves of a specialty store — the perfect souvenir or gift.
