I recently moved to Richmond (the Fan, to be specific), and I'm looking for great nearby restaurants, and markets to buy good food and wine. I prefer to shop at locally-owned grocery stores, and I love the Farmer's Market on 42nd Street, but Ellwood Thompson's quality and selection have disappointed me. I've tried and enjoyed Mom's Siam, Sticky Rice, Can Can, 6 Burner, Kuba Kuba, and a few more.
Any restaurant suggestions (breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks...) in the Fan and downtown areas? And recommendations for the best produce, meats, seafood, wine, and cheese? I always enjoy trying little-known or hole-in-the-wall places.
Thanks for all your help!
