Petit Pois Fundraiser Honoring Brian Jones
Restaurant break-ups can be messy, but there could hardly be a more pleasant one than Brian Jones’ parting with Petit Pois, the restaurant whose kitchen he has run for eleven years. This is Jones’ last week at Petit Pois, and in tribute to his time there, the restaurant is donating $.50 of every lunch and $1.00 of every dinner to Jones’ favorite charity, Charlottesville Abundant Life Ministries. “We will donate the money in Chef Jones’ name to honor him for all the hard work and love that he put into the restaurant for the past 11 years,” says co-owner Brian Helleberg. “Over the years, Brian has been consistently generous with his time and talents to his church and other charitable causes, so supporting his favorite charity this week seemed like the best way to send him off.”
That’s just special. Go eat at Petit Pois.
