Special thanks to The Charlottesville 29 for the most recent feature on their site, and to Ivan Rekosh of ZoCoLo for the kind words!
Looking back at 2016, what stands out as the best thing you ate all year? Top area chefs provide their answer. (Here are last year’s picks.) A tribute to Charlottesville’s bounty:

Flank and Brisket Pho at Thai Cuisine & Noodle House. “This time of year I’m loving the pho from Thai Cuisine. I usually opt for the flank and brisket but sometimes add the tendon. The broth is amazing. I love to stick my whole face in the bowl and breathe in the steam while I’m slurping the noodles. Really warms you up from the inside out on these cold days. Also a great family runs it.”
