The 616

Danville Virginia now has a Farm to Table restaurant. Last weekend The 616 had its grand opening.

Ribbon cutting at The 616. The restaurant is in a part of town once known as Neapolis.

The executive chef (and part owner)Chris King is also a farmer. He and his partner Darcy Cropp own King Cropp Farm, one of a handful of local chemical-free farms. They are mainstays at our farmers market.

We’re excited to see Danville finally getting on board with Farm to Table. We’re especially pleased that our farm is one of the partner farms, and our food is on the menu. Because Chris and Darcy are farmers, they understand the seasonality of food production. The menu at The 616 will change daily, to reflect what is available locally.

We’re hoping the restaurant will be a great success.
