Author Joanne M. Anderson admits to an ongoing love affair_with small towns and restaurants, that is. "Small towns because they're, well, small," she says. "Restaurants because they have evolved from mere places to satisfy hunger to centers of social activity and entertainment."
Small-Town Restaurants in Virginia is Anderson's guide to 240 restaurants in nearly 150 small towns from Abingdon in the Blue Ridge to Leesburg near Washington, D.C., from Monterey on the western edge of the Shenandoah Valley to Williamsburg and Chincoteague in the east.
Readers will find food and service to strike their fancy whether they're inclined toward five-diamond restaurants, down-home drive-ins or anything in between. Those who favor a superb winery combined with a great restaurant might try Chteau Morrisette on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Others who like fine food served by waitresses in period costume will enjoy the Olde Mudd Tavern in Thornburg. Folks who want home-style cooking in an antique-filled setting can't go wrong with Granny B's in Appomattox, while those out for a retro mood shouldn't miss the Pink Cadillac in Greenville. There's also dining around the world at the lovely Swiss Inn in Glade Spring. And that's just the beginning.
For each restaurant, Anderson provides basic information like price range, meals served and style of cuisine, then follows it with a write-up touching on local history, the restaurant's atmosphere and decor and the variety of foods served_everything readers will need to make a selection.About the Author:
