Five Finds on Friday: Kirk Smith

by Charlottesville29


On Fridays, we feature five food finds selected by local chefs and personalities.  Today’s picks come from Kirk Smith, Chef of Commonwealth Restaurant & Skybar.  Tomorrow, from 11 am to 4 pm, Commonwealth is hosting Soupapalooza, where top area restaurants will go head-to-head in a battle of soups.  You can sample all of the outstanding entries and then enjoy a bowl of your favorite, all while supporting Habitat for Humanity.  Smith’s picks:

1)  Santa Fe Enchilada at Continental Divide.  “With some ‘Danger’ and ‘Wait a Minute’ hot sauces.”

2)  Spicy Chicken Burrito at Mono Loco.  “Often on the weekly specials list.  I love the jalapenos inside and the refreshing side salad to cool things off.”

3)  Conserva al Spada and then Margherita D.O.C. Pizze at Lampo.  “Delicious selections at this new favorite.”

4)  Omakase at TEN Sushi. “Please include a couple of pieces of Hawaiian Walu!”

5)  Seafood Charcuterie Board at The Alley Light.  “Please.”
