This week I’ve decided to take a break from food and write an article on something about which I am very passionate; coffee—specifically, espresso. Even more specifically, I’ll address where to get a decent cup of coffee in the capital city. Many people mistakenly believe that espresso comes from a different species of coffee bean […]
Lots of restaurants will tell you that they have the best burger in town. But at Carytown Burger and Fries, they just might. Owner Mike Barber daily buys the best fresh ground beef which he uses to grill your burger to order. This is not a fast food burger restaurant. Nothing gets cooked ahead of […]
I alluded to the fact that Virginia is void of her own unique style of barbecue in an earlier post but now I feel it appropriate to properly rant. What the heck is that?! Virginia, the place where the first Jamestown started what would become the US, the home of Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Poe, Maury […]
I recall a created holiday we celebrated in Elementary school aptly entitled, “America Day.” We had games outside and learned facts about the 50 states and the presidents but when it came time for lunch we switched gears.

Richmond’s historic Shockoe Slip has long been the scene of some of the city’s finest restaurants and best nightlife. Much of the land in Shockoe Bottom and Shockoe slip was part of Colonel William Mayo’s plan of the city. This is one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods. The building of the James River Flood Wall […]
When the coupon came in the Valpak mailer, I mentioned to my wife that we hadn’t been to Sino American Cafe in some time. We decided that $9.99 for the self-described largest international buffet In Richmond was a pretty good deal. And knowing that there was a sushi bar was an added bonus for the […]
In a bit of pre-Christmas festivities that screamed out for Egyptian and Mexican, my family spent an afternoon seeing the Mummy exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and then headed over to Cary Street for a late lunch/early dinner at Nacho Mama’s. We wanted a unique experience, one that both boys would like, […]
