1. The Alley Light

The Alley Light is a new lounge with an air of mystique to it. The dim lighting and classic decor give it the feeling of a speakeasy. They serve wonderful cocktails and French food.

2. Maharaja

Maharaja’s Facebook says they’ll make you feel like a king, and with their elegant decor and fancy dinnerware, I kind of did (well a queen, anyway). Their rice specialties are amazing and can be made in varying degrees of spice.

3. Holy Cow

We’ve covered Holy Cow before in our vegan article, but in case you missed it. Holy Cow recently opened up on The Downtown Mall with rave reviews. The prices are great and the vegan hot dogs are a hit!

4. Royal Indian

5. El Tepeyac

As a Californian, I missed the tamales I grew up with. EL Tepeyac really hit the spot. Their authentic Mexican and Latin American food is definitely worth a try.

6. Shadwells

Shadwell’s is a beautiful place for steak and seafood lovers to come together. The salmon with lime ginger sauce is amazing.

7. Basil

Basil is an absolutely stunning Mediterranean restaurant with excellent dessert. I hope to try their brunch someday soon!

8. Tastings Of Charlottesville

Tastings offers excellent high end food, but if you haven’t quite saved up enough for dinner, they also serve a fantastic lunch!
