"At the helm of Parallel 38 is Justin Ross, who comes to Charlottesville after several years overseeing beverage and operations at some of D.C.'s best places to eat and drink, including Zaytinya, Oyamel, Zola, and Potenza."

"Justin Ross is one of the best beverage directors I have ever worked with." Richie Brandenburg, EDEN's Director of Culinary Strategy

Just 32, Justin Ross is a prodigy of sorts. He started working in a restaurant at just 14, was an assistant pastry chef by 16, and an assistant sous chef by 17. He then held several different jobs in beverage and restaurant management, developing a passion for wine, and a skill at pairing it with food, earning certificates from the Court of Master Sommeliers, American Guild of Sommeliers, and French and Spanish Wine Academies. He was not even 25 when he was recruited by Richard Hamilton, an Alain Ducasse protege, to run a 17,000 bottle wine cellar at Tidewater Inn's Restaurant Local, in Easton MD. - Charlottesville 29 "Introducing Parallel 38"

"Parallel 38 features an innovative Mediterranean cuisine, created by Justin Ross, inspired by the temperate latitude of the 38th parallel, along which the world's most iconic wine regions sit like Alicante in Spain, Italy's Calabria and the Greek Ionian Islands." – Yahoo Finance

"…those looking for a new culinary adventure for a night out...will find it at Parallel 38.." - The Hook
