Tuesdays during The Corner series feature two favorite Corner food items selected by a different University figure each week. Today’s picks come from Tony Bennett, head coach of the UVa men’s basketball team and the 2014 ACC Coach of the year.  Bennett’s teams have increased their win totals in each of his first five seasons at UVa, culminating with last spring’s ACC regular season and tournament championships, and a number one seed in the NCAA tournament.  Fresh off two wins to kick off the new season, here are Bennett’s picks:

1)  Turkey Burger Bowl with Boylan Sauce and Fixings at Boylan Heights.  “My wife turned me on to the turkey burger bowl, Boylan sauce, and fixings at Boylan Heights and she never makes mistakes on great tasting food. On a side note, the milk shakes are sneaky good.”

2. Philly Chicken at Littlejohn’s (tender, low-fat chicken with shredded lettuce, tomato, sweet peppers and mayo with melted American cheese).  “The first sandwich I had when I arrived in Charlottesville was the Philly Chicken at Littlejohn’s. Talk about a great first impression of Charlottesville! It’s my go-to almost every time I’m there, and it’s available 24/7, 365!”

Tuesdays during The Corner series feature two favorite Corner food items selected by a different University figure each week.  Today’s picks come from Morgan Brian, the fourth year All-American soccer player, fresh off her latest stint with the U.S. Women’s National Team, which she helped win the 2014 CONCACAF Championship.  Brian returned to Charlottesville just in time for Senior night, and is poised to lead the nation’s 3rd ranked Hoos into the post-season, beginning with the ACC tournament this Friday night.  Here are the picks of the player ESPN recently called “America’s next big soccer star.”

1) Five Easy Pieces from Littlejohn’s.  Lean ham and turkey breast with 1000 island, herb mayo, home-made cole slaw, crisp bacon and melted Muenster cheese on grilled pumpernickel. “Littlejohn’s has the best sandwiches, and I always get the Five Easy Pieces. It’s always a good meal for lunch or late night studying in the library.”

2) Plain Bagel with Sausage and American Cheese from Bodo’s.  “Bodo’s is probably the most popular breakfast place on campus. It’s a meal that I normally eat for breakfast on the days that we play games.”
