brookville = delicious
charlie and i checked out brookville this year for restaurant week. brookville opened last june above escafe on the dowtown mall. charlie and i had heard mixed reviews about the place, but decided it was worth a try. it certainly was! the food was delicious and the service was great. one thing to note is that each of our 7 collective courses, all had some sort of pork product in it.
course 2: charlie had the bacon/turnip soup and i had brookville’s version of a swedish meatball
course 3: by far my favorite. i had the chicken and waffle. really awesome. probably one of my top 5 dishes in charlottesville. and charlie had a pork belly with spaetzle, applesauce, and saurkraut. delicious. we didn’t love the ratio of meat to rest of toppings (too much pork), but everything was still cooked beautifully.
course 4: bacon waffle with apple topping and a bacon ice cream with toffee. even the toffee had bacon in it.
i would and will certainly return just for another taste of the chicken and waffle. the texture combination was perfect. the balance of savory, spicy, sweet – right on. and the chicken was cooked just right.
