Red Pump Kitchen
Red Pump Kitchen, by luxury fine properties collection Easton Porter Group, is the culinary heart and soul of Charlottesville, Virginia. In spite of anchoring the downtown area's popular Pedestrian Mall, this dining destination is far from pedestrian. With an open kitchen anchored by a classic wood-burning oven, Red Pump Kitchen’s casual, festive atmosphere is equally ideal for a special occasion or a midweek night on the town. Chef Lee Hendrickson’s Mediterranean and Tuscan-inspired menu showcases house-made pastas, gourmet pizzas and seasonal dishes inspired by local Virginia farm partners. Each dish may be paired with a selection of carefully curated wines and hand-crafted cocktails. The interior holds an airy, rustic European atmosphere illuminated day and night -- from sunlight pouring in through the open front-façade of the corner location or from the soft evening glow of candles atop live-edged wooden tables.
