The primary goal of Red Row Farm is to provide local, organically raised meat and produce for our restaurants. We hope you’ll get a chance to eat at any of our stores and sample to fruits of our labor and the stars of this here narrative.
Our first and primary foray into all things local food is Revolutionary Soup. With locations on the Downtown Mall and Corner District of Charlottesville, this soup-salad-sandwich shop proves that it is possible to serve good food made from great ingredients at lunch counter prices.
The Whiskey Jar
In February 2012, Will opened up The Whiskey Jar, a restaurant focused on serving traditional food from the Piedmont region of Virginia. The fried chicken and collard greens are to die for. Check out the live music at dinner on Tuesdays and Wednesday, or catch a late night show on the weekends right on the Downtown Mall.
The Alley Light
Opened in February 2014, The Alley Light is a lounge-style restaurant features inspired French small plates by Chef Jose DeBrito and an equally impressive cocktail menu by Micah LeMon. Find the entrance to this gem in the (you guessed it) alley next to Rev Soup. Did I mention The Alley Light was a James Beard semifinalist for Best new Restaurant 2014?
The Pie Chest
After consistently blowing us away with her desserts as The Jar’s baker, Rachel Pennington deserved a place to showcase her true talent – pie! Located on 4th St. NE, just off the Mall, I challenge you to pick just one favorite flavor at The Pie Chest.
We’ve been spoiled by the talent we get to work with, so when Cesar Perez and River Hawkins, both veterans of The Whiskey Jar, started talking about opening a Mexican restaurant, we wanted to eat there immediately. Go to The Bebedero for River’s margaritas, stay for Cesar’s ceviche. In the Glass Building, next to the Water Street Parking Garage.
