About this Business
From Our Editors
Raised in England by Jamaican parents, Alvin Williams developed a knack for merging global ingredients early on. Now, at Cobalt Grille, he draws upon his heritage and tenure as a chef at some of London’s finest hotels to craft a menu of upscale American-European cuisine. He uses locally sourced, organic ingredients with fresh seafood, lamb, and duck, and pairs them with the likes of parmesan risotto, wild mushrooms, and quinoa.
Lauded by Hampton Roads as “sexy in an understated and elegant way,” Cobalt Grille’s dining room ensconces companions in booths illuminated by tiny blown-glass chandeliers and separated by thick black drapes that can, as long as the wine is as good as they say it is, double as impromptu capes. In addition, the outdoor patio, filled with fire pits, is a great destination for a night out.
