As I sit here writing this note to you I realize it has been over a month since I wrote about the theater activity in Charlottesville. That is obviously too long a period between letting you know about events and happenings in our area.
This time I decided that we would talk about special occasion and/or romantic restaurants. Dan and I celebrated our anniversary a few weeks ago and his birthday this week so we have gone out for dinner at some special restaurants. There are four restaurants that top our list for special occasions.
- Ivy Inn – locally inspired seasonal American cuisine
- L’etoile – fresh local ingredients, French culinary techniques
- Fleurie – contemporary French
- Downtown Grille – steak and seafood
All of these restaurants are within an easy 15 minute drive from Foxfield Inn.
We’ve enjoyed the mustard-crusted lamb and grilled local Rag Mountain trout at Ivy Inn, the scallop & celery root puree and lobster with lentils at Fleurie, the pork loin with local peaches at L’etoile and the steak with goat cheese & balsamic vinegar at Downtown Grille.
When you are in the area try one of these restaurants. You won’t be disappointed.
If you are staying with us we will gladly make reservations for you at any of these four.
