I travel back and forth from Northern Virginia and Charlottesville, VA for work just about every week. As much as I love NoVA, I have a soft spot in my heart for UVA and the wonderful city of Charlottesville. NoVA and DC might have a huge variety of restaurants, but Charlottesville has the QUALITY. Cville has hands down the best restaurants and food ever.
One of my favorite lunch places is Revolutionary Soup. They have delicious soups, salads, and sandwiches, all made with local, fresh ingredients. My newest obsession has been the Adam's Apple Sandwich — AMAZING. They make it on sunflower wheat bread with turkey, bacon, chèvre, arugula, garlic aïoli, sliced apples, and house made apple butter. I have ordered it every time with no bacon and it's wonderful. I loved it so much, in fact, that I instantly bought the ingredients to make it at home! Adding my own healthier (of course) spin, I've eaten it about five times in the past week — no lie! I've substituted fig preservers for the apple butter, largely inspired by yet another delicious Charlottesville lunch spot — feast!
