About Root 29
Celebrating Charlottesville Food Tradition
One of Charlottesville’s most well-known former residents contributed to the city’s strong food culture. Thomas Jefferson was inspired by French cuisine and Virginia influences, and he often held lavish dinners at the White House and at his Monticello home. Daniel Webster wrote in 1824 that dinners at Monticello in Charlottesville were “served in half Virginian, half French style, in good taste and abundance.”
That rich food culture still exists in Charlottesville. Are you searching for a new setting for a night out in Charlottesville?
