Passion The Restaurant

A stunning and beautiful restaurant, located in the Greenbrier area of Chesapeake, featuring creative, innovative cuisine from local farmers and fisherman.   Passion's menu is based on the concept of Terroir, by providing seasonal, regional and local foods prepared using a "French Technique" in an American style. Terroir, a French term associated with wine, coffee and tea, is used to denote the special characteristics that geography bestowed upon them. It can be very loosely translated as "a sense of place" which is embodied in certain qualities, and the sum of the effects that the local environment has had on the manufacture of the product.
