Richmond, Virginia

Ham biscuits are the signature dish, but there is so much more to savor in this revitalizing city on the James River. The cuisine of Richmond is heavily influenced by it’s southern history, but also by it’s proximity to the Chesapeake and Atlantic. These days you are as likely to find crab cakes on the menu as you are hush puppies. The long summers mean cookouts are common for 7 months out of the year. Any block party in Richmond is incomplete without deviled eggs, ice tea, and hot dogs. Of course it’s also not uncommon to see a bucket of oysters on the patio fresh and ready to be shucked and slurped right out of the shell. Downtown’s Shockoe Slip and Fan neighborhoods are dotted with bistros that serve everything from trendy creations worthy of any of the bigger metropolises to the north to comfortable home cooked fare perfect for a lazy afternoon or evening. Of course there is also the aforementioned ham biscuits, be sure not to leave town without trying them.
