What’s Good at Capital Ale House?

What’s Good at Capital Ale House?

Since we went to the Capital Ale House for an office luncheon the best we could do was to stare in awe at the menu. And that was just for the beer. The downtown location carries 53 beers on tap. That’s not a misprint. There’s a huge selection of ales, pilsners, stouts, porters and more […]

Richmond Bass Pro Restaurant

Richmond Bass Pro Restaurant

Once when I used Foursquare to check in at Bass Pro Shop in Ashland a friend, who does not see me as the outdoors or hunter typed simply responded “why?’ I told her that she had obviously not been to the Islamorada Fish Company Restaurant.

Asian Galaxy Review

Asian Galaxy Review

On the ever changing landscape of the shopping centers at Stratford Hills, Planet Wings has disappeared and Asian Galaxy has taken its place. Don’t let the commercial exterior fool you.

The eleven-year-old who is fine tuned to remember these details said, “Oh […]

Raw Fish with Rice

Raw Fish with Rice

I remember distinctly thinking while in Italy that I didn’t trust the fish at the new sushi bar in town.  I was in an old walled city that was relatively traditional despite a large student population and I felt like seafood couldn’t possibly be fresh since the town was not right on the beach and […]

Eating on a Budget in a Budget Friendly Place

Eating on a Budget in a Budget Friendly Place

Richmond is not New York.  It’s not even Paris or London.  It’s much cheaper by comparison and so when you’re out of work and crunched for time between episodes of Jerry Springer and Maury Povich, you need to find places that offer good food for an even better price.  And NOT FAST FOOD! Of course […]
