Experience exquisite dining when visiting restaurants on the Downtown Mall Charlottesville
Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall is the home of many fun, quirky shops, elegant boutiques, and historical niches. But, no matter what fabulous adventures your plan for a day holds, you inevitably look forward to meal times most of all. After a day of walking the outdoor shopping strip, touring the University of Virginia, or hiking famous sites like Monticello, you’ll probably work up quite an appetite. Stopping in one of the restaurants on the Downtown Mall Charlottesville is a perfect way to quell that hunger. You’ll find over thirty restaurants to choose from, ranging from chic French cuisine to small chains that remain local favorites.
All these restaurants are located within walking distance from shops, art galleries, and the Paramount Theatre. That means, you can plan a date night or a day of vacation activities on the Downtown Mall without the stress of driving to and parking in multiple locations.
