Thank you for joining us in TJ's Tavern...reflecting "fresh" contemporary fare influenced by Thomas Jefferson!
Thomas Jefferson's dream of preparing fresh table fare was evident of the tremendous variety of fresh
sustainable vegetables and fruits grown in his gardens of Monticello. His love for gardening and utilizing
the freshest seasonal offerings at the daily dinner table has inspired our very own TJ's Tavern "Mini Monticello
Rotunda Garden", located just outside our tavern windows for your enjoyment. Feel free to join us in our fresh
philosophy with a fabulous meal and a stroll through our garden to enjoy the aromas of over 100 varieties of herbs,
vegetables, fruits and flowers. We proudly source our products from local and regional farms, wineries, breweries
and suppliers including: the local food Hub, AM Fog, Edward's Virginia ham, Carolina Mountain Trout, 1855 Black
Angus Beef; Barboursville, Horton, Chateau Morissette, Rockbridge, Lovingston & White Hall Wineries; Starr Hill,
Devil's Backbone, Apocalypse Ale Works & Legend Breweries. We trust you will enjoy our inspired cuisine, service
and hospitality with many enjoyable visits!

Today we think only of tomato but there were historically dozens
of incredible catsups, used to add flavor to meat and fish.
An English import , probably of Chinese origin, the first American
catsups were thinner and spicier than today's ketchup.
We trust you will enjoy our special catsup & condiment preparations.
