The Charlottesville 29

If there were just 29 restaurants in Charlottesville, what would be the ideal 29?

A Culture of Takeout: Charlottesville Restaurant Dining at Home

sultankebab

A big part of what makes our area special, Charlottesville’s restaurants face a grave threat from COVID-19. To help them survive, our restaurants invite Charlottesville to embrace a culture of takeout. In lives darkened by a pandemic, a restaurant meal can bring light.

Through their remarkable ingenuity during the pandemic, Charlottesville restaurants have shown how desperately they want to serve us. It is up to us to give them that chance. Restaurants need us. And, we need them. Brighten lives of seclusion with a restaurant meal. 

This list will be updated with changes and additions. Also included are restaurants offering on-premises dining. Send updates or additions to charlottesville29@gmail.com. Tip generously!

Charlottesville Restaurants: Here’s How You Can Help Save Them

sultan_kebab_0030-X2

Photo by Tom McGovern

Charlottesville restaurants are in peril. They need your help.

In the food industry, margins are so tight that most restaurants cannot surive any sustained sharp drop in business. The devastating effects of COVID-19 upon restaurant business will be unprecedented. Fortunately, to compensate for those effects, some Charlottesville landlords and suppliers are showing flexibility on payment deadlines, in an effort to help restaurants somehow stay afloat. But, it is not enough. Restaurants cannot survive without your help.

While Charlottesville Restaurants are implementing precautions against the spread of COVID-19 and encourage diners to keep visiting, fears suppress business.

You can help restaurants survive this crisis. How? By purchasing gift cards. Buy as many you can for as many restaurants as you can. For regular favorites that you plan to visit anyway, this will literally cost you no money. You are merely paying now for a check you would have to pay later anyway. So, for example, buy a $500 gift certificate now, and then use it all year long. Without needed cash flow, your favorites might not still be around.

The Gift Card Program: Take a few minutes to help save our restaurants. Find gift card links to restaurants of The Charlottesville 29 here. And, below is gift card purchase information for a broader group of restaurants.

Manila Street: Filipino Food Coming to Dairy Market

Dairy Market’s impressive list of tenants continues to grow. The latest addition to the market hall is Manila Street, Filipino food from the founders of Little Manila food truck. In addition to favorites from the truck, owners Jessie and Fernando Dizon will serve other dishes based on family recipes passed from one generation to the next.

Born in the Philippines, Fernando has lived in Charlottesville since age 12. A lover of food, Dizon has always enjoyed the Charlottesville restaurant scene. “Growing up Filipino, you learn to have a love and appreciation for food – cooking it, eating it and sharing it with others,” said Fernando.

But, he says, a great void was a source for Filipino food. So in 2012, Fernando started selling handmade lumpia (spring rolls) and other traditional foods first at area markets and then from his truck, Little Manila. With a following around town, the lumpia have made appearances in Five Finds on Friday and in this week’s Best Bites: Highlights from Charlottesville’s Culture of Takeout.

Now, a brick and mortar home in Dairy Market will allow the Dizons to introduce even more Filipino dishes to Charlottesville, like Fernando’s father’s Mitsado – tender beef  stewed in a tomato based sauce with carrots, bell peppers and potatoes. A family affair, Manila Street is named after the Charlottesville street of the same name, with a row of houses that is home to more than sixty members of the Dizon’s extended family.

Dairy Market opens in December.
