Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams - Charlottesville

Yes, it's the first holiday of the New Year. And not just one day, BUT A WHOLE WEEK! I am, of course, speaking of restaurant week, Starting Saturday January 24th and going through Saturday January 31st, this is your opportunity to have a meal at all of Charlottesville's best restaurants while supporting a local charity. 


This week, $1 for every meal purchased will go to support the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. Last year they distributed over 18 million meals to hungry families in need and expect to have an even higher volume this year. As you enjoy great food from community conscious restaurants that dollar that you provide to the food bank will feed four families! 


Here's the How To from Courtenay Stuart: 

How to do Restaurant Week

The very first Charlottesville Restaurant Week had foodies buzzing and tables filling up faster than a top chef can slice a ripe tomato. Ditto for this one in January. Getting in on the fun is easy– but it requires a little planning. Here’s how:

Step 1: Mark your calendar for Saturday, January 24th-Saturday, January 31st

Step 2: Peruse the menus from the participating restaurants to decide which ones suit your fancy. With so many participating, you can’t visit one every night!

Step 2: Call each restaurant directly to make your reservation, and mention that you’re coming in for “Restaurant Week.” Reservations are first-come, first-served; and chefs report that interest has been running high, so don’t tarry.

Step 4: Please show up on time, and make sure you’re dressed to make your mama proud, since some of the participating establishments have dress codes.

Step 5: Make sure you order off the special “Restaurant Week” menu, as some of the participating restaurants will also offer their regular— i.e. more expensive— menu. (Everyone will be dismayed, and you might end up washing dishes, if you end up ordering the $45 flaming surf-and-turf that’s not part of the special prix fixe menu.)

Step 6: Savor your meal, and when paying your bill, please remember that drinks, tax, and tips are not included.

One of my favorite restaurants that I would recommend you get in to is Three Penny Cafe on West Main. 

The Restaurant menu at Three Penny includes some delightful dishes such as a Petit Filet Mignon, Rockfish (particularly good) and anamazing Local Sesame Seed Crusted Tofu with Udon Noodles. There are great cocktails as well! Reservations are first come, first served so don't wait! And you never now, show up at Three Penny and you might even run into me there. 

There are lots of great restaurants participating so check them out. You get a chance to try out restaurants while helping others who are need of food as well. I can not imagine a greater combination. 

And as always, if you are looking to buy or sell a home in Charlottesville, call me, I would love to help! Mention that you found me because of this add and I will even donate a portion of my commission from your sale to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank as well! No on in our country shoudl ever, ever, go hungry.

It really is a great charity Lisa. We had a fundraiser at my brokerage for them at Thanksgiving and raised $1400 for them then.
