Five Finds on Friday: Michael McCarthy of Dr. Ho’s

Five Finds on Friday:  Michael McCarthy of Dr. Ho’s

On Fridays, we and The Charlottesville 29 feature five food finds selected by local chefs and personalities.  This week’s picks come from Michael McCarthy, chef/owner of Dr. Ho’s Humble Pie.  McCarthy’s picks:

1)  Hot Sicilian sandwich at Durty Nelly’s Wayside Deli.  “Rye bread makes life better, plain and simple.”

2)  Fried Chicken at GOCO on Cherry Ave.  “There is a lot of fried chicken out there, but this is the BEST hands down.”

3)  Crab Cakes at Duner’s.  “The real deal, lots of lump crab and pleasantly seasoned.”

4)  Pork Souvlaki Dinner at Tip Top Restaurant. “They know how to hook it up!”

5)  Mustard Crusted Rack of Lamb at Ivy Inn Restaurant.  “Everything Angelo touches turns to gold, but the rack of lamb at the Ivy Inn is perhaps his biggest culinary achievement.”



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.
