Smooth move: Restaurant Week opens in style

Charlottesville Restaurant Week kicked off Monday night with a bang. Over at Brookville Restaurant, co-owner Jennifer Pendleton, who'll be marrying her chef-partner Harrison Keevil later this year (congrats!), says they "did awesome, about 50 people, which is great for us on a Monday." Plus, she says the phone has been "ringing off the hook all day." A lot of large groups have booked, like 14 and 12 tops, so she says things are filling up fast. But you might have a chance Sunday. 

Over at the Blue Light Grill, Bang!TEN, and the C&O Restaurant it was the same story.

"There have been calls all day long," says the C&O's Lindsay Bell, who was managing the packed house on Monday. "We've had to reserve seats in the Bistro, which are usually for walk-ins. Sorry, but we're booked for the entire week." Hey, you never know, give them a call and they might squeeze you in. Tip: request a late seating. 

"We saw people we've never seen before, and a lot of people from out of town," says Bell. "Where do they hear about this?"

Bell said everyone appeared to be having a good time, though no one wanted to sit outside on the steamy night. 

"The kitchen has got it down now," says Bell. "Everything went real smooth."


I guess Kelly Porterfield, Director of Nursing, at Charlottesville Health and Rehab has decided not to tell the truth about what happened. We will have to wait and see what the F.B.I has to say.

I went to Positively 4th Street last night and the food was absolutely delicious!!! It has a great atmosphere as well. It did not disappoint in any way and I will most definitely go back there again. I HIGHLY recommend it!!!
