At NU Restaurant & Lounge, a meal isn't complete without an accompanying show. The full-service restaurant specializes in brunch and dinner performances ranging from vaudeville acts to live music sets. As the stage explodes in bright lights and glitter, the culinary team prepares classic bar dishes such as fried pickles, Angus rib-eye steaks, and burgers topped with sautéed mushrooms. Perhaps NU's most enduring attraction is its drag brunch—a cabaret replete with comedy, music, and aerial routines from East Coast-based female impersonation group The Glitz Girls.
Simplify Me owner Ranee uses a sharp eye and 20 years of experience in the New York fashion industry to help clients rejuvenate their home or personal style. Her trio of services includes personal shopping, organizing homes to create a beautiful space, and re-working closets to fine-tune the outfits within to fit their wearer.
Modest white booths glow with golden sconce light at the base of a red-brick wall. A few feet away, crisp tablecloths fold over the edges of black wooden tables, whose accompanying wooden chairs look as though they belong to a home in the country.
All aspects of The Peacock's Pantry display a marriage of familiarity and refinement. The menu presents comforting American and European classics with contemporary, gourmet twists, such as honey-lime-glazed chicken, panko-crusted crab cakes, and bacon-wrapped petite beef filet mignon. The small-plate selection allows diners to enhance meals with the excitement of a game of hot potato, and the dessert selection includes specialties such as Kahlua chocolate mousse and maple-and-pecan-baked brie.
Rostov's has been giving Virginians their morning jolt since 1979, roasting all its coffee beans fresh daily using its very own Jabez-Burns 1940s roaster. Rostov's usually has around 50 breeds of buzz-beans in stock for your caffeinated consumption, such as the rich mocha java ($10.25/lb.), the flavorful Seville orange ($11.25/lb.), and the intensely robust French roast ($11/lb.). Prices fluctuate slightly based on current market values. Rostov's can also fill your mug with about 60 strains of loose-leaf tea, which cover a rainbow of greens, blacks, whites, reds, and herbals. Traditional English breakfast tea ($9/lb.) begs to be served with crumpets and dry wit, and shares shelf space with more exotic concoctions, such as a green tea with roasted rice. The decaf Richmond blend features black tea ($14/lb.), blending cinnamon, orange peel, and cloves into a one-way ticket to total bliss, minus the grueling layover in Insomnia.
We offer over fifty varieties of loose-leaf, organic and fair-trade tea. From everyday blends to connoisseur single leaf teas, we like to think we have something for everyone. And with that comes our relaxed atmosphere where we encourage lounging, playing games, reading or napping. Oh, and there's free WI-Fi too.
Little Mexico Restaurant crowns its menu of traditional Mexican recipes with ranchero, mole poblano, and other zesty sauces. Chicken fajitas arrive in sizzling skillets with spanish rice, beans, guacamole salad, sour cream, and tortillas, joining tabletops alongside house specialties such as carnitas and taquitos. The kitchen also caters to vegetarians with meat-free twists on taco salad and enchiladas, and prepares deep-fried ice cream for dessert with help from a crunchy breading and the fifth law of thermodynamics.
