Elisha was a fabulous tour guide! Our five restaurants were in a short walking distance. The portion sizes were small plate-fulls at each stop, great variety, and by the time we were finished we were completely full and didn't end up eating dinner! Elisha provided us with wonderful facts about Charlottesville, UVA, and The Mall area. The tour stops were well-timed and each restaurant was ready for us when we arrived! Favorite stops were Hamiltons, Tonic, and Bebedero!! Some of us opted to add cocktails, which were VERY Good! The cocktails at Tonic and Bebedero were the best! Recommend!!!
