Tiny French restaurant in depressed railroad town--Michel Cafe, Clifton Forge, VA. Story is, he was a French chef at the Homestead, met a local girl who wouldn't leave Alleghany County, so he opened his restaurant there. Fabulous food, lots of atmosphere. It's 30 miles from Lexington, 45 miles from Roanoke, right off I-64
