Very few people know that Charlottesville lies on the same parallel as Spain’s Alicante, Italian Calabria, the Greek Ionian Islands and California’s Napa Valley. Is this information merely a geographical curiosity? What they all have in common besides the temperate climate is exceptionally good food and wine.
Parallel 38 offers you a gastronomic adventure that covers these great places. This contemporary, artsy, and imaginative restaurant delivers an unforgettable experience with great décor; the restaurant features a superb soapstone bar, a comfortable lounge area, and an enormous chalkboard mural.
The huge communal 12-foot walnut table is great for parties or for sharing food with both friends and strangers. The menu offers superb small plates, often combining ingredients from different Mediterranean countries. Their cocktails are excellent, and there are more than 100 wines on their very carefully prepared list. All wines are available by the glass.
