Today’s Five Finds on Friday come from Megan Garvin, co-owner of Moe’s Original BBQ – Water Street, which has partnered with a new local delivery service Cville Delivery. Launched this week by Cville Hop on Tours, Cville Delivery offers delivery to specific neighborhoods on specific days of the week. While national delivery services often take large cuts of what restaurants receive for delivered meals, locally owned Cville Delivery charges restaurants nothing, a great help for restaurants in the Culture of Takeout. Garvin’s picks:

1) Pickled Ramp Martini at The Alley Light. “I’m a sucker for an extra dirty martini and this one takes the cake. The perfect amount of saltiness every time. This is always a stop on the list when friends are in town or if we need a private wind down after a long day at work.”

2) Kale Tortellini at Bang!. “I finally understood the phrase ‘melts in your mouth’ after having the kale tortellini with brown butter. It’s always so hard to pick just a few dishes at Bang!, but you can guarantee that this one always makes the cut.”

3) Wait a Minute Sauce at The Continental Divide. “I’m addicted. Since my first visit at Continental, I’ve gotten the same order every time. A fresh house margarita to start and Red Hot Blues covered in Wait a Minute Sauce. Just enough heat to make your mouth water but not so much that it overpowers the dish. Perfection.”

4) Double Cheeseburger at Riverside Lunch North. “If my husband and I can’t agree on where to go for lunch, chances are you’ll find us at Riverside North. Best greasy smash burgers around. Double cheeseburger with grilled mushrooms and onions with a basket of fries and onion rings, and we’re both happy campers.”

5) House Acai Bowl at Corner Juice. “When I’m in a hurry and crave something healthy in the morning, Corner Juice is my go-to. Their acai bowl is light and fresh but has the perfect amount of substance. Julie has turned me on to their home-made almond butter. You never turn down the almond butter.”
