On Fridays, we feature five food finds from local chefs and personalities.  Today’s picks come from Josh Lowry, sous chef of Zocalo (and earlier this week Zy.De.Co.)  Lowry’s picks:

1)  Thai Beef Consomme Noodle Bowl at Pad Thai.  “Rich, brothy, crunchy, sweet, sour, savory. It’s everything in a bowl . . . the best!”

2)  Pastrami and Swiss on an Onion Bagel with mustard at Bodo’s.  “We are extremely lucky to have a place like this in Charlottesville.  Let’s not take it for granted.”

3)  The Classic #1 at Chick-fil-A.  “My alltime favorite restaurant.  When I was a kid they always had sweet old ladies out front with free chicken samples.  I always walked by a second time for another free taste . . . they almost always let me.”

4)  Dan Dan Noodles at Taste of China.  “I know most folks have gone over to Peter Chang’s new spot but this is my go-to.  Again, Charlottesville is lucky to have a place like this.”

5. Burrata at Tavola.  “If you haven’t been . . . go!”
