LOOK Who’s Dining With Us This Week

LOOK3 2016

LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph returns to Charlottesville this week for another eye-opening weekend of exhibits and events featuring world-class photographers.

We’re excited to welcome them back and proud to once again participate as sponsors. Please visit to see this year’s schedule of events and buy your tickets, if you haven’t already!

On Wednesday evening, we had the pleasure of serving a special dinner for LOOK3 artists and organizers before the festival’s first artist talk at The Paramount Theater, featuring this year’s TREES photographer, Frans Lanting.

We served a three-course menu for the group, with a streamlined selection of our favorite items:

– House Salad –
Mixed Greens with House Vinaigrette, Apples, Jicama, Radish, Cucumber, Tomatoes and Candied Peanuts

– Choice of Entree –
Grilled Polyface Chicken Breast with a Sundried Tomato, Artichoke and Caper Salad, Orzo Pasta with Feta and Pesto and an Herbed Jus
Pan Roasted Grouper with a Summer Succotash, Roasted Local Oyster Mushrooms and a Charred Tomato Vinaigrette
Vegetarian Blue Plate Special: Spaghetti Squash Caponata, Lentil Cake, Sauteed Greens, Blackeyed Pea Salad

– Dessert –
Chocolate Pavé with Whipped Vanilla Mascarpone and Oatmeal Crumble

– Wine –
Ferrari-Carano Fumé Blanc – a crowd-pleasing “best of both worlds” oaked California sauvignon blanc that can satisfy chardonnay drinkers.
Angeline Pinot Noir – a fruit-forward, versatile Russian River Valley pinot with hints of cherry.

LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph is June 13-19, 2016. Visit the LOOK3 Bookstore next door to us at Old Metropolitan Hall. For lunch and dinner reservations this weekend, please book online or give us a call at (434) 295-6649.
