The local daytime news show Charlotte Today on Monday featured Davidson College's Vail Commons. Named "Davidson's best kept secret," the on-campus cafeteria is open to students as well as community members and offers "something for everyone," said local chef and food blogger Jenny Brule.
Brule is a classically-trained chef and writes the "Finding Tasty" food blog. She has contributed recipes, reviews and culinary stories to WFAEats, Charlotte Today, The Charlotte Observer, and Charlotte Magazine, among others. She praised Commons for its chef-prepared meals and diverse menu – including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options as well as classic "comfort" foods, ethnic foods, and an extensive salad bar.
