In perusing the mid-Atlantic board I've noticed a fair number of "Charlottesville had little to offer" or "the pickings were slim last time I was in Charlottesville" comments in response to people looking for places to eat in town. I know this to be untrue. I'm going to start with a few places but please, C-ville knowing folks....we have a real array of excellent places to chow across a lot of price points, styles and types of food. (I'm definitely asserting all of the places I mention as chow-worthy at least).
The Alley Light
The Whiskey Jar
Public Fish and Oyster
The Blue Moon Diner
The Livery Stable
JM Stock Provisions and Supply
Ivy Provisions (I guess Provisions is a thing now)
And so on. Please add to the list! As I have time, I'll come back and flesh out more detail about these places, but a google search of any with "Charlottesville" will you get you where you need to be in the first hit, I believe.
