On Fridays, we feature five food finds selected by local chefs and personalities.  This week’s picks come from Dan Potter, co-owner of Potter’s Craft Cider, which recently released their second varietal, the Oak Barrel Reserve.  Aged in apple brandy barrels for 4-6 months, the Reserve develops vanilla, caramel and toasted oak flavors.  Less than 200 cases were bottled, so get it while it lasts.  Potter’s five picks:

1)  Southside of Heaven at The Flat. “An eye opening experience to what a crepe can be.  Perfect after a long night out, big enough to feed two, but usually gone before anyone else gets a taste.”

2)  Freedom Ranger Chicken from Free Union Grass Farm.  “These birds are very active and run around more than a standard Cornish Cross. Any way you choose to cook it, they have the tastiest thighs you will ever try.”

3)  Hemingway’s Paris by Forage.  “I’m very excited for the next dinner from Megan Kiernan and Justin Stone, the curators of Forage. These two put together more than just an incredible meal – they create ‘holistic occasions meant to be enjoyed by all the senses.’  Every part of the experience is worth savoring.”

4)  The Horny Goatburger at Black Market Moto Saloon.  “Organic spiced goat with avocado, bacon, Gouda and cilantro lime sauce – what else is there to say?”

5)  Fried Chicken with Collards at The Whiskey Jar.  “Simple, but delicious.  This is a staple meal done well.  It’s always nice to enjoy at the end of a long week alongside a cold drink.”

The Charlottesville 29 is a publication that asks: if there were just 29 restaurants in Charlottesville, what would be the ideal 29? Follow along with regular updates on Facebook and Twitter.
