What do you think are the best restaurants in Richmond? Here are some of my favorites that I go to regularly or I left knowing that I wanted to go back.
Pho So - This is the best Vietnamese restaurant hands down. Authentic food, great prices and family owned. Pho So is way better than Mekong and Vietnam 1. At Mekong you are paying for the atmosphere and below average food. At Pho So you are paying for excellent authentic food. #24 and #49 are the way to go. Their soup is also very good. You can always tell which Asian restaurants are the best because they are filled with Asian people.
Full Kee - This is the best Chinese restaurant in Richmond. Go for the dim sum breakfast. Lunch and dinner is your typical Chinese restaurant. Dim sum starts at 11am and they bring 2 carts around with food that you choose from. No other place in Richmond does this. This is the best authentic Chinese food in Richmond.
Davis & Main - One of the best fan restaurants. Tuesday nights they have live jazz. The crab cakes and salmon are amazing. They always have some interesting specials also. I'd rather go to a restaurant that specializes in something rather than serving everything imaginable. Great friendly bar and well trained wait staff. Excellent key lime pie for dessert minus the raspberry dressing.
Zeus Gallery Cafe - A little more expensive than usual, but fantastic food. Writing the menu on a chalk board is odd and hard to read. Our waitress was able to make recommendations. Fig and goat cheese salad and a great beef tenderloin.
Bacchus - Another fan favorite. Professional and very good waitresses. Very good seafood, pastas and duck. Excellent bar and drinks. Rather expensive, but worth it.
