While returning from a holiday visit in Alabama we stopped for the night in the small Virginia town of Marion, just off I-81. The hotel desk clerk gave us a few ideas of local dining establishments and, as we do business in Italy, we selected the Tuscan Italian Grill, just a mile or so away. We were warmly greeted in pleasant surroundings and presented with a comprehensive menu from which we selected some old favorites. With the arrival of the bruschetta appetizer, the magic began. Our server had told us that all dishes were prepared by the chef "from scratch" and she was right on the money. The bruschetta, followed by veal picata and penne florentine were amazing! Totally unexpected in this small town. We asked to speak to the chef, a delightful young man originally from Chad, who explained that he was brought to Marion from Brooklyn where he was found by the restaurant's owner, who is Moroccan. As someone said "Only in America."
