Steakhouse | Richmond, Richmond

While this may be at the higher end of the price range, there is no question that Bookbinder's is well worth it all. Excellent and nuanced service, an elegant ambience, a diverse wine list, and food that is quite memorable. We went there for my son's birthday, and he nominated his food as "one of the top 5 steaks I've ever had"- and he is tough to please. I think we' have started an annual tradition for him, and one of many future visits with the family. More

Had s late dinner with two small kids. Service was fantastic as well as the flexibility for a kids meal which was not on the menu. They forgot to enter one order, that then came late but that was on the house then and they created an extra kids desert - great service and customer orientation. The food was ver delicious! More

Contemporary Southern | Richmond, Richmond

We were kind of worried about Max's after the previous menu revision, which was a radical one, but the menu has been revised again to make it more like the old menu. Customer favorites like the waterzooi have been brought back, and the overall feel of the menu is very classy. We're delighted not only that the menu has been restored to greatness, but also that the restaurant clearly listened to its customers' feedback. On top of that, the dishes we got were perhaps the best we've ever had from there. Max's is on its A game once again, and we can't wait to go back. More

Contemporary American | Richmond, Richmond

Little Saint is a Museum District Gem. Went for restaurant week, so my experience (for now) is limited. But the pimento cheese app is slamming the door fabulous, made on site as are many of the choices you have to choose from at Lil' St. But let's back up and talk cocktails, the list is exhaustive and yes something for everyone, fresh squeezed ingredients and even drinks by ERA! The Manhattan and the Gimlets were so yummy. I had the bone in grilled chop with grits and asparagus..cooked so perfectly and delish! Friend had the soft shell crab entree...and we will be back soon. Got to love RVA food vibe. As a transplant from Chicago and other food cities, so proud when folks come to RVA, as I'd put our food up against the finest city offering out there. More

We love their fabulous Bartender Will, the amazing Chef David, and all their attentive staff! Cannot wait to continue coming back again and again. We adore how this restaurant is a hidden gem. The cocktails are such a treat and so delicious. Everything is simply DIVINE; our favorites are the Lobster Mac & Cheese, Scallops, and Filet but you cannot go wrong with any of their spectacular menu items. Don't forget to finish the night with the Chocolate Flambé! More

Discover Virginia

Virginia is known for more than just delicious southern cooking; they have their own style! If you are a ham lover, look out for Virginia ham — also known as Smithfield ham. It is only legal to produce in one place in the world, Smithfield, Virginia. Virginian cuisine also includes a variety of BBQ that range from all vinegar to a vinegar-based sweetness. A hearty Brunswick stew is another mainstay of Virginia. Originally using an Appalachian flying squirrel, it now uses a variety of meats braised in this vegetable stew. Traditional Virginian apple cider and apple butter, made from Wineapples, is a real treat. Another delicacy is any seafood that is cooked with Old Bay, originally formulated with spices from a specific region of the state, the Chesapeake Bay.
