Eclectic is a good word.
The menu at Danville’s Virtue + Vice certainly covers a lot of ground, with everything from empanadas to pasta primavera, and pretty much everything in between.
Another description could be global comfort food, exemplified by something you’ve never seen on a menu before: A Mac N Cheese Flight, with three separate macaroni and cheese to sample.
But despite this apparently plebian orientation, Virtue + Vice aims relatively high on the culinary scale, with preparation and presentation both living up to the relatively high standards of Danville’s Restaurant Row. And the setting – in the long-time Peasant & The Pear Space – includes not only a suitably well-appointed dining room, but a pleasant patio with a bit of a garden.
As for the enigmatic name of the restaurant, that remains a bit of a mystery, which is ramped up by the puzzling title of the dessert menu: Redemption. After all, if you can’t be redeemed by mac and cheese, there’s really not much hope that beignets will do the trick.
