Charlottesville dinner during UVA graduation weekend???
I'm looking for a good place in the Charlottesville area (within 15-20 minutes of C-ville) where we might still be able to get a table during UVA's graduation weekend (May 20-21). It doesn't need to be fancy, just delicious, and should be able to accommodate a group of around 12. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
The most popular places might be booked, but you can still try. Here are some of the good ones that are large enough to fit your party:
Shebeen (South African): http://www.shebeenpub.com
Zocalo (Latin-inspired): http://www.zocalo-restaurant.com
C&O (American French): http://www.candorestaurant.com
Downtown Grill (Steak and Seafood) http://www.downtowngrille.com
South Street Brewery (Great Beer. Great burgers & ribs): 434-293-6550
There's also a new place that hasn't opened yet: MAYA. I don't have contact info, but the chef is the former chef at Clifton Inn and I'm sure it will be great.
