Local Restaurants

Richmond is a small city with an expanding palate. Over the past decade, the city has enjoyed a restaurant renaissance much to the delight of area foodies. From riffs on classic Southern cuisine and fresh seafood to a smorgasbord of global offerings, we've got a little bit of everything. Many restaurants capitalize on Richmond's farmers' markets and proximity to small farms by featuring local seasonal ingredients. The University of Richmond's Heilman Dining CenterTyler's Grill, and Passport Café are also open to the public.
