Five Finds on Friday: Dylan Allwood


On Fridays, we feature five finds selected by local chefs and personalities.  Today’s picks come from Dylan Allwood, sous chef of Brookville Restaurant, which this week introduced a lunch menu, as well as mid-afternoon hours for drinks and their “Munchies” menu.  Allwood’s picks:

1)  Gambas al’ parilla at Mas.  “Everything that Tomas and his team come up with is delicious, but I have to get these giant shrimp with garlic aioli whenever I go.”

2)  Fried Chicken at Wayside.  “Wayside’s chicken is always juicy and crispy – everything that I want in fried chicken.  I love dipping it in the mashed potatoes and gravy.  I hit this spot up on my days off for lunch – a little more often than I should.”

3)  Whiskey on the patio at Miller’s.  “My cooks and I always go for a drink after the brunch shift.  It’s my favorite place to sit and relax after a stressful week in the kitchen.”

4)  Hell Sandwich at BBQ Exchange.  “I have known Chef Craig for a few years and he is always trying to get me to try his latest hot sauce experiments.  The hell sandwich is painful to eat, but I end up ordering one almost every time we make the hike to Gordonsville.”

5)  Foie Gras at Ivy Inn.  “If I see foie on a menu I have to get it.  Chef Angelo’s foie dishes are some of the best I’ve had.”
