Esquire continues the neighborhood love: the magazine has just named Virginia the “Food Region of 2014” and spotlights local favorite Sub Rosa as one of 7 restaurants, cideries, vinyards, and farms earning us the reputation:
Look at Virginia on a map. How is it not an established food paradise? The oldest region in the country. One of the biggest. Loaded with wealth and power, enclosing the nation’s capital. Vast mountain silences and endless meadows pierced by broad and powerful rivers, all emptying into the biggest, most complex bay system in the country. And yet, the occasional ham excepted, it has never gotten its proper due. It’s time. The Old Dominion has seemingly overnight exploded into one of the country’s greatest gastro regions.
