Richmond Dining

Richmond has hundreds of places to dine, from classic American cuisine to almost any kind of seafood and ethnic specialties, to those national restaurant chains familiar to all and located in most home towns. Of course local tastes claim their favorites. Many of Richmond's fine restaurants may be found in the historic district downtown called Shockoe Bottom.

Some of the best food experiences are to be found in one of the following places:

Kuba Kuba
1601 Park Ave, Richmond, VA 23220
+1 804 355 8817
For a Southern city, Richmond certainly has its share of Cuba-lovers. Kuba-Kuba in the Fan satisfies those cravings for Cuban food and music. The paella is a favorite here, and it comes in bountiful servings. The space on scenic Park Avenue has been transformed from what used to be a pharmacy into a bright and cheerful, Latin eatery.

Limani Mediterranean Grill
3123 West Cary St, Richmond, VA 23221
+1 804 353 6345
Dine quietly or gather friends and colleagues for the best seat in the house: the chef's table, which seats 10 and gives a full view of the open kitchen. Limani serves fresh line-caught fish grilled Mediterranean-style over wood and basted with oregano and infused olive oil.

Hill Cafe
2800 Broad St, Richmond, VA 23220
+1 804 648 0360
The Hill Café located in Historic Church Hill offers delicious neighborhood comfort foods in a cozy setting. Nightly "Blue Plate" specials, a broad selection of wines & beer and friendly service make The Hill Café a great spot to eat, drink and enjoy the neighborly atmosphere.

Avalon Restaurant & Bar
2619 West Main St, Richmond, VA 23220
+1 804 353 9709
Eight seasonal entrees, four warm pasta dishes and a small sandwich and salad menu provide room for adventurous contrasts. Dessert takes a more modern twist with an almost Warhol-inspired presentation--a wedge of house-made chocolate pate (flavored with Jamaican rum) arrives on an oversized white plate with a blood-red swirl of raspberry coulis.

Hard Shell
1411 East Cary St, Richmond, VA 23219
+1 804 643 2333
Located in downtown Richmond's historic Shockoe Slip, the Hard Shell Restaurant is known to locals as one of the best seafood restaurants in town.
