About The Magpie
Owen Lane and Tiffany Gellner have experienced nearly every side of the Richmond restaurant scene. Both began in entry-level positions—Owen as a dishwasher, Tiffany as a hostess—and worked their way up from there. After years of experience, this husband-and-wife team has joined forces to helm The Magpie RVA, an American gastropub nestled in the historic Carver neighborhood. Like its food, the space is a hodgepodge of eclectic elements: a sign affixed to an antique typewriter welcomes guests, and lighting fixtures made from salvaged machinery hang above dark wood tables and a plush crimson-cushioned bench.
As The Magpie's chef, Owen is never content to sit still. He changes the menu frequently, gracing white plates and wood trays with unique combinations of local and exotic ingredients. He has crafted shareable plates such as smoked rabbit croquettes, housemade sausage, and charred Japanese eggplant. As for main dishes, he might prepare grilled quail, roasted duck, or oyster-mushroom risotto. Chef Owen also showcases his passion for beer and bourbon at an L-shaped, polished-wood bar supported with elegant metal braces. Here, bartenders pour sudsy brews into goblets and garnish cocktails with fruit. Owen occasionally leaves the comfort of his kitchen to perform private chef services at customers' homes.
