Five Finds on Friday: Hurt and Garcia

by Charlottesville29


Today’s Five Finds on Friday come from Morgan Hurt and Gabe Garcia of Kitchen Catering & Events, which has just launched a sandwich shop at their catering kitchen, offering a menu of their favorite sandwiches. Like the Brooklyn-inspired Hot Wet Beef. Hours are Wednesday through Friday from 11 am – 3 pm, on Rivanna Ave off Harris St. Kitchen Catering & Events also hosts a regular pop-up restaurant at The Wine Guild’s Wednesday wine tastings, with themes changing each week. Next up, on Wednesday, May 3, is A Night in Portugal, with Portuguese wines and cuisine. Hurt’s and Garcia’s picks:

1) Fried Calamari at Vivace. “This is at the top of our list. Perfectly fried and crispy, with those fried hot peppers and marinara sauce, delicious! And you really can’t beat their patio — the best in town!”

2) Cheeseburger at Riverside Lunch. “Always good, fast and cheap, and the sweetest waitresses in the world. Recovery food, for sure!”

3) Nachos at Beer Run. “Simply the best nachos in town. However, The Bebedero’s are pretty amazing too!”

4) Turkey Dip at Ace Biscuit & BBQ. “Amazing! Sometimes you want BBQ, but you just don’t want pork, you know? The turkey dip is smoky, drippy, and delicious.”

5) The Big Schloss at Dr. Ho’s Humble Pie. “A perfect pizza!  All of their pizzas are perfect, but we’ve just been featuring this one at our house recently.”
