CDS-IMG_6097-079

On Fridays, we feature five food finds selected by local chefs and personalities.  Today’s picks come from Bill Justus, Executive Chef of The Boar’s Head Inn, which this weekend is hosting the Charlottesville Men’s Pro Tennis Challenger, with Somdev Devvarman and several other Virginia tennis stars, among other pros.  Justus’ picks:

1) Linzer Cookie at Foods of All Nations“Beautifully decorative sandwich cookies.  Great store with an extensive selection of choices, and knowledgeable, helpful, and courteous staff.  A Charlottesville institution for more than 50 years.”

2)  Spicy Chicken Wings at Fardowners.  “The essence of pub fare.  Good vibe . . . comfortable, relaxed atmosphere.  Friendly, attentive service.  The beer doesn’t get much more local than at Fardowners.”

3)  Burger at West Main.  “Unfailing.  Burgers are always hardy and flavorful.”

4)  Enchiladas Camino at Baja Bean Co.  “The shredded meats and the perfectly melted queso blanco sprinkled with fresh cilantro.  Good place for a quick lunch.  Always fresh and consistent.”

5)  Pizza at Fabio’s.  “Pizza is always on the mark.  Again, a great place for a quick meal.  Lots of parking, casual dining with indoor and outdoor seating.”
