Wonderful atmosphere, food and service. When we got back to Richmond we were saddened to hear about the recent fire. All the best to the owners and staff and good luck towards a speedy re-opening.

This restaurant had a major fire about a week ago. A Richmond landmark, it is sad to have it closed. They are evaluating the situation. Best of luck to all the employees, many local restaurants are offering shifts to cover the lost wages.

July 10, 2017 Richmond Times reported that because of a fire at this restaurant over the weekend, it is closed indefinitely. It was always a bit too noisy for my complete enjoyment, but it was such an interesting place and the food was always beautiful...More
