The Local Flavor
Amazing restaurants only in RVA
The only problem you might run into while dining in the Richmond region is not having enough time to try everything. In fact, you could go out to dinner every night for nearly three whole years and have something new each day. Soul food at the James Beard Award nominated Mama J’s Kitchen. Colossal sandwiches from a local favorite, Perly’s. Lines-down-the-street fame at ZZQ. The French fare of Can Can. The classic business dinner at Old Original Bookbinder’s. The fresh-from-the-rivah taste of Rappahannock. And did we mention “The Best Pie in Virginia” from Proper Pie Co.? Richmond, Virginia is one of the most creative culinary destinations you could ever encounter. Warning: you might become a food snob.
The Richmond Region is a foodie hotspot with hundreds of exceptional restaurants offering everything from spicy Szechuan to New Zealand-style savory pies, down-home southern barbeque to the finest farm-to-table cuisine prepared by James Beard-nominated chefs.
