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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Tip generously!
Takeout only of carry out deli items, dinner items, packaged goods, beer and wine. Fri-Sat, 11am – 6pm; Sun, 11am – 4 pm. Order online. Plus, a weekly online farmer’s market, with pick-up each Wednesday.
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.

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.
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.
Meanwhile, weekly random drawings will continue all autumn long. Each week, you can win a chance to be featured in Five Finds on Friday and a $100 gift certificate to a Charlottesville restaurant. Check back Monday, October 26, for your next chance to win, including a gift certificate for Ivy Inn!
Every Wednesday, a winner selected at random will be announced to be featured in that week’s Five Finds on Friday. The winner will also receive a $100 gift certificate to a restaurant supporting the Culture of Takeout. For the first winner, announced on Wednesday, October 21, the gift certificate is to Lampo. (Thank you, Lampo!)
There is no entry fee except a commitment from entrants to support our restaurants this winter through the Culture of Takeout. Without our support, the Charlottesville restaurant community might not survive the winter intact. Our restaurants need us and we need them.
