The food scene in the Roanoke Valley in Virginia’s Blue Ridge is the subject of a recent feature in the Osceola News-Gazette.

The “Virginia’s Blue Ridge is for Food Lovers” article was written by Peter Covino, who recently visited the region as part of a media tour hosted by Visit Virginia’s Blue Ridge.

The food-focused feature is the latest in a series of articles in the Osceola News-Gazette that highlight what makes Virginia’s Blue Ridge a great destination for a mountain vacation.

This story showcases many of the unique local dining experiences in the region, including Mac & Bob’s Restaurant in Salem, Ippy’s Restaurant in Rocky Mount, Scratch Biscuit Co. in Roanoke’s Historic Grandin Village, The Wooden Spoon in Boones Mill, and The River and Rail in the Crystal Spring Neighborhood.

Covino has high praise for the variety of local restaurants and cuisine:

"Feeling lucky?

When it comes to dining in the Roanoke Valley, good fortune awaits in just about every direction, with the diverse selection of restaurants all over the city and points beyond.

The unlucky part? Unless you live here, there just isn’t enough time to take in all the great places to eat.

Fortunately, during a recent trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, we got to sample some of the areas best, from the simple, like made to order biscuits served up 100 ways for breakfast, to dining on a more upscale level at one of Roanoke’s finest restaurants."
