We were recently in Richmond for the first time. We were traveling with 2 kids under 2 (yes, we're crazy), so our dining options were limited. We try to avoid chains, and love eating local.
The first dinner, we walked from our hotel, the Omni, to Richbrau brewpub. The beer was good, and the food was good pub grub.
The next day, we ate at Buzz and Ned's BBQ. We enjoyed the brisket sandwiches, the sweet tea, and their own hard lemonade. For dinner, we had average Italian within walking distance of the hotel.
The next morning for breakfast, we ate at the 3rd Street diner. My husband loves diners, so this was a treat for him. For dinner, we went to Legends Brewery. Here, I thought the beer was better than the food.
Our last day found us at Perly's for breakfast. We had Country Ham, Grits and Biscuits, which were great. For lunch, we had pizza at Bottom's Up. The pizza was good, not spectacular, but the location was fun, right under the tracks.
I do have to say that the southern hospitality was wonderful. No one batted an eye (in my sight, anyway), to have a party of 3 adults, a 23 month old and a 3 month old walk in. This northern family (Minnesota) is looking forward to returning!
