We recently cooked our auction dinner for the winning bidder of the Charlotesville29 Blue Ridge Food Bank fundraiser. Chef Brian prepared a multi-course menu in his own home, made mostly from home-grown vegetables and local meats, and he paired it all with delectable wines from his cellar. Read all about the details here. Bon Appetit!

Fleurie's wine list has been awarded a Best Of Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator! Fleurie is one of 8 restaurants in Virginia to win the award, and the only restaurant in Charlottesville.
Chef Brian has donated an auctioned dinner for 12 to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank charity. The auction was part of a larger, month-long internet charity auction organized by Simon Davidson of Charlottesville29.com . Davidson rallied together dozens of restaurants, each with a unique offering, and auctioned off the packages to benefit the Food Bank.
The Fleurie auction offering includes a group dinner at Chef Brian's house, featuring produce from his garden. The auction ended at $6500, after a fierce bidding war. Each dollar provides about four meals for the areas' hungry, so Fleurie's auction will help provide about 26,000 meals through the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.
Special thanks to Simon Davidson for organizing such a successful fundraiser for the Food Bank!
For Bastille Day 2016, the Alliance Francaise of Charlottesville hosted a French tradition on the downtown mall: A Waiters' Race. Servers from several Charlottesville restaurants competed against one another (all in good fun) to win a coveted array of prizes, such as the Gravy Boat of Honor or the Salad Bowl of Fame. Fleurie's very own Sam came in first and took home the elite Grand Prize: The Chafing Dish of Glory.
