While travelling, we stopped at the historic Downtown Mall in Charlottesville and discovered the Downtown Grille. Beautiful interior/atmosphere. We sat in the bar area at a table next to the window, watching the passersby. The bartender waited on us; service was very good. The braised beef short ribs over horseradish puree was excellent. My husband ordered two appetizers as his main course: fried calamari with red pepper aioli and the grilled portobello and vegetable napoleon with sundried tomato vinaigrette. Both were great. If we were ever back in the area, we definitely would stop back again.
