Michele Jones

Michele Jones is all about great people, great food and great community. As co-owner of Comfort, Pasture, Flora, and Bingo – Michele is a community mover and shaker who loves to give back and delight others. Michele is a doer who loves the people who surround her, both in and outside of her restaurants. Whether she’s hosting her yearly foster-care Christmas gift drive at Pasture or traveling to Dollywood with her best friend since childhood-Michele believes in making everyone feel special, welcomed and that they have a place in the world. She was once Diane Sawyer’s person of the week, has won an Elby award for best front of house management and with her partner, Jason Alley, her restaurants have been named Best in Virginia by Southrrn Living magazine. She loves to travel and find small treasures to surprise friends and family. All these are probably the reasons why she loves that quote attributed to Vince Lombardi: “The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.”
