Check out this fantastic list of 101 unique places to dine in our wild and wonderful state on the WV Division of Tourism website. Tourism partnered with the Collaborative for 21st Century Appalachia, and public input, to compile this group of eateries.
The Collaborative for 21st Century Appalachia is a nonprofit organization, formed in 2005, that promotes economic development in our area by emphasizing local ingredients resulting in a healthier version of traditional foods. At the WVFARM2U site, you’ll find all kinds of great information, including a listing of WV restaurants that feature WV-grown produce and proteins.
Back to the 101. You’ll find the address, phone number, website (for most) and a brief description of each establishment. Restaurants are listed alphabetically, so the order in which they appear is not related to a rating system of any sort. As you can see from the map above, the list covers all areas of the state.
Fork You has visited about a third of the places on the list, although some of those visits did not result in an official “forking”. When traveling away from home, the list can provide dining inspiration, and perhaps one day we can say we’ve tried them all.
How many of the 101 have you been to?
