On Fridays, we feature five food finds selected by local chefs or personalities. With the U.S. Open finals this weekend, we take a break from chef picks to feature those of a Cavalier tennis legend. Two-time NCAA singles champion Somdev Devvarman is on a very short list of the greatest athletes in UVa history. Now on the pro tour, Devvarman is still often in Charlottesville, and he knows his food. (His Twitter profile says: “I play tennis & love eating.”) Devvarman’s picks:
1) Warm Medley of amFog Wild Mushrooms at Ivy Inn.
2) Cigar Rolls and Drunken Noodle at Monsoon Siam.
3) Chicken w. Three Peppers in Hot Iron Plate at Peter Chang’s China Grill.
4) Every omelet (as long as you get home fries) at Bluegrass Grill and Bakery.
5) Buffet Lunch at Milan.
