Five Finds on Friday: Lee Welch

Today’s Five Finds on Friday come from Lee Welch, FOH Manager of Revolutionary Soup, which has just introduced sandwiches stuffed in piadina – a traditional Italian flatbread cooked on a griddle, originating in Romagna. The Spicy Italian, for example, is capicola ham, Genoa salami, provolone, lettuce, tomatoes, pepper relish, and red wine vinaigrette. And, the Mozzarella Pesto is fresh mozzarella, roasted red peppers, basil pesto, and arugula. Welch’s picks: 

1) Quad Shot Iced Mocha made with Old World Espresso from Shenandoah Joe. “If I want to have the most productive day possible, it starts here. The coffee is always delicious, consistent, and highly effective. Wonderful and inviting staff in a cozy setting.”

2) Burrito del Dia at The Bebedero. “Always a different burrito and always amazing food complemented with inventive cocktails. The team behind the artistic collaboration that is The Bebedero strives to make each guest experience as beautiful as the atmosphere.”

3) Rib-Eye Steak & Cheese at Miller’s. “Some of my best memories are set on the patio of this ‘Oh-So-Charlottesville’ establishment with great friends, awesome food, and straightforward drinks. They shave the steak in house and serve it with onions, peppers, mushrooms, and jalapeños on an authentic Amoroso roll with melty white American cheese.”

4) Biscuits & Gravy at Barefoot Country Store. “Scottsville’s best kept secret is this quaint gem where you can enjoy a bottomless cup of coffee with the best biscuits and sausage gravy I’ve ever had. They locally source their ingredients, offer vegan/vegetarian options, and manage an inventory of antiquated toys, old fashioned candies, and even ammunition in their nostalgic shop.”

5) Apple Cider Donuts at Carter Mountain Orchard. ‘These mouth-watering donuts are as quintessentially Charlottesville as Marco & Luca’s and Bodo’s. It’s one of those things you miss dearly when you leave town and can’t get enough of when you come home.”
