Pasture is a new restaurant that opened in Charlottesville a few months ago. It is located across the street from our favorite movie theater. We had watched it’s construction with anticipation of stopping there for a quick bit to eat after seeing a movie. Well, we finally made it.
Pasture is a no frills type of restaurant, very clean lines to it’s decor and operations. You walk into a large open space restaurant with high ceilings, minimalist table settings (silverware in an old-fashioned milk bucket) and a straight forward menu. The menu is based on a small-plates style with a Southern cuisine influence – Southern-style tapas. There are larger plate options that can be for one or to share with the table. We had the pork chop with herb spoonbread and seafood stew.
When you go you must try the Pimento Cheese and Crackers and the Mushroom Croquettes from the Snack menu. Those selections, along with some of our local wine, began our dining experience. Other choices include house-smoked chicken sausage, fried peanuts, seafood stew, rice grits with smoked tomato broth and black eyed peas, and bourbon and brown sugar-cured salmon. We will be back to try many of the other menu items.
Be sure to check out their farmers board or ask your server for info about their local providers.
It’s a nice place to stop on your way home from the movies or for a get-together with friends.
