Southern Way in Crozet
Dish has been meaning to give a shout out to the Southern Way Caf© in Crozet, which opened in October in the old Teresa’s Restaurant space on Route 240 just before you get to Starr Hill Brewery. Like Teresa’s, it's putting the spotlight on 'country cooking," with an emphasis on locally sourced produce from Horse & Buggy, Polyface Farms, and others.
At the helm is Crozet restaurant vet Jason Fitzgerald, who has cooked at Revolutionary Soup, Fardowners, and the Three Notch’d Grill. So what can you expect? Breakfast, lunch, and dinner and country cooking with a definite twist. We're talking things like Senegalese peanut tofu, fried eggplant sandwich with marinara sauce, and tortillas, along with classics like chicken and dumplings, eggs anyway you like em', sausage gravy, biscuits, corned beef hash and country ham.
