From Our Editors

Inside the 19th-century River District building that now contains Julep's, industry seems to have progressed backward. The structure, which once housed a lumber house, a candle factory, a cyborg-assembly plant, and a locksmith, has transformed into a farmer's haven, where locally grown and organic products construct modernized Southern fare. It’s a place where executive chef Randall Doetzer looks to several pinpoints on the map—namely Charleston, Savannah, and New Orleans—to inspire his menu. Duck confit and Cajun beer-barbecued mussels herald helpings of seafood gumbo, and the wine selection ranges from domestic Virginian bottles to Old-World European imports.

Randall's creations have helped Julep's secure awards in Richmond magazine for the Best Southern-Inspired Restaurant Dish of 2012, with shrimp and grits and fried green tomatoes taking first and second place, respectively. Julep's was also awarded a spot on the magazine's 2010 list of Richmond's 25 Best Restaurants for its "house-made stocks, baked-daily breads and farm-to-table ingredients" that "represent a true philosophy, not a nod to trends."

The magazine also lauded its “sexy environs”—lampshades stand on each white-clothed tabletop, illuminating a backdrop of exposed brick and polished wood. A winding staircase leads to an upper dining room flanked by artwork and a fireplace. Here, private parties order from prix fixe menus that rotate seasonally.

Richmond Restaurant Guide

Richmond restaurants represent flavors from all over the world. Dining in Richmond is always exciting, so why not plan a culinary adventure at one of the city’s exciting venues? Enjoy some down home southern cooking with great ambiance at Lady N’awlins Cajun Café. Lady N’awlins offers a fusion of French, Spanish, African American, and Cajun influences with stellar results. The menu includes local specialties like Chesapeake oysters, and more exotic choices like alligator cakes. Crawfish étouffé is another treat. Klara’s Kitchun is also a wonderful source of southern food, including barbecue, chicken fried steak, and fried chicken. The atmosphere is friendly and folksy.

Craving something lighter? How about a visit to Cous Cous, a Mediterranean bistro. Cous Cous offers a wonderful selection of tapas, and it is a great place to go for a meal with friends, since sharing allows for a greater variety of these tasty little dishes. Choose from items like wilted spinach salad, eggplant napoleon, and fried calamari with feta. The Blue Goat is an upscale eatery with eclectic choices and locally-obtained ingredients. It serves truly original dishes, one of which is their sumac-encrusted jumbo scallops. Eating at The Blue Goat will be an experience to remember!

Food from across the globe is available in Richmond. Su Casa Mexican Restaurant in the Carytown section of Richmond serves delicious tacos, and even a smattering of Greek dishes. Mai Sushi offers freshly prepared tempura, sashimi and, of course, sushi. Their prices are reasonable and the menu is extensive. And, when looking for a good pizza, Stuzzi is a must. Stuzzi serves traditional Neapolitan pizza cooked in a brick oven. They only use fresh, high quality ingredients, which is one reason why their pizza is a local favorite. Stuzzi also offers a full Italian menu with pasta, sandwiches, and more. Richmond food is in abundance in the city no matter what the craving may be.
