Breaking News – John & Karen Shields Have Left Town House

According to The Washington Post, Chefs and souses John and Karen Urie Shields have left the restaurant that they put on the map and conversely made them culinary stars – Town House in Chilhowie, Virginia. Southwest Virginia is not the easiest place to get to from anywhere else, but it is a beautiful area and with them at the restaurant, it also became a culinary destination of the first order. No doubt, their incredible talents will accompany them to their next restaurant, presumably in a more easily accessible location. I look forward to that very much, though a part of me remains a little sad to lose such a charming restaurant in such a charming (albeit difficult) spot. To get a sense of what was so charming and what there is to look forward to elsewhere, you can find my post of my meal there here.
