Chef Melissa Close-Hart returns to the restaurant she led for 15 years, to
4 James Beard Foundation semi- nalist nominations and the designation
by critic John Mariani, as “one of the nest and most authentic Italian restaurants in the United States.” Now Chef of Charlottesville’s new Junction Restaurant, Chef Melissa was trained at the New England Culinary Institute, and launched her career under Frank Stitt at Birmingham’s famous Bottega Restaurant, moving on to Rosa Pistola in San Francisco, and to our friend Craig Hartman’s Cliff House in Colorado. After bringing many superior Guest Chefs to Palladio through the years, she has possibly saved the best for last.
