Local Food in Charlottesville

kodiakbear Apr 11, 2013 08:29 AM

We will be visiting Charlottesville VA for one night, and would like a good meal at a place that uses local ingredients where possible, and serves VA wines and beers. Three places have been suggested: The Local, Brookville and C&O. Brookville looks interesting, but seems to serve a lot of pork and bacon, which we prefer not to eat. A friend had two really good meals at the Local, but the reviews on another website were not very good. Do you have a recommendation among these, or a different recommendation? Thanks!

    I've had good food at The Local. Other great restaurants that focus on sourcing locally:



    And if you want fine dining, you can't beat www.letoilerestaurant.com.

        Tripadvisor. It had some good reviews but a number of not-very-good reviews.
