Longtime friends and fellow foodies Michelle McIntyreand Jill Evans-Kavaldjian opened Dinner Belles Kitchen Cupboard this weekend in downtown Lovettsville.

McIntyre, a caterer and homeschooling mom of seven, and Evans-Kavaldjian, a noted local artist and vegetable guru, are teaming up to tackle an unmet need for specialty groceries in northwest Loudoun and to offer prepared meals by subscription for busy families and commuters. The partners are setting up shop in a historic building right on Lovettsville’s main street.

“I’m the kitchen and she’s the cupboard,” McIntyre said with a laugh.

McIntyre will offer subscription meals four nights a week and operate her catering business out of the shop’s commercial kitchen, while Evans-Kavaldjian will run the retail grocery, offering both local and international food items along with craft beer, wine and cider.
