Five Finds on Friday: Chris Arseneault


On Fridays we feature five food finds selected by local chefs and personalities.  Today’s picks come from Chris Arseneault, owner of Charlottesville’s favorite seafood source: Seafood @ West Main, which for years has served the area’s best restaurants.  Chris’s picks:

1)  Kim-chee Fried Rice at The Korean House.  “There is great, authentic Korean food in C’ville but it is served in a most unpretentious manner. Relax and enjoy.”

2)  Fried Calamari at Pizza Bella.  “With the house marinara (no cheese please), it is a meal by itself.”

3)  Lunch Buffet at Royal Indian.  “Fresh naan delivered to your table at a lunch buffet? Yes!  I typically go on Friday after a long week of serving my precious customers . . . love you all!”

4)  Blackened Catfish Sandwich at The Whiskey Jar.  “This will make a southern boy speechless.”

5)  My favorite fish…Hamachi (seriola quinqueradiata).  “Sashimi is the quintessential manner to consume this beautiful fish.”
