A TownHouse to eat in.


A few months back, my friend Vaughn mentioned an amazing meal that he had at TownHouse,a restaurant in the small Appalachian town of Chilhowie in Southwest Virginia. I have had the menu sitting on my desk for months, drooling over Confit of Rabbit Leg, served with morel mushrooms, juniper, salsify and an infusion of wood as well as Tea Smoked Loup de Mer, White Asparagus with Pulled Honey and Cold Smoked Chocolate with carrot, indian curry, coriander, coconut, and mint. I did a little research and understood the culinary context better after seeing their experience at Chicago heavyweights Charlie Trotters and Alinea. And today they were recognized by the New York Times. Check out the great article at
