Our Preston’s Restaurant Experience

On a snowy April night, we had checked in at The Inn at Virginia Tech for a weekend sporting event. Without time to spare for a leisurely meal, we stopped in Preston’s Restaurant.

We learned that it was grilled cheese month. Naturally, we ordered a grilled cheese sandwich served on Texas toast. We added shrimp bisque, a mesclun mix with strawberries, and creme brulee to our order. All I can say is that we were delighted with our meal. Most importantly, if we had more time, we would have returned to try their other selections.
