The new names in Richmond food, per Food & Wine
Food & Wine called Richmond a "culinary powerhouse" in a new piece out Friday, and if you thought you were having a flashback to 10 years ago, you'd be wrong.
What's happening: Recent appearances — and wins — on national food competitions is "making the world take notice of the state’s capital," Food & Wine wrote, noting:
- Daniel Harthausen's Young Mother pop-up, following his win on HBO’s "The Big Brunch."
- Pastry chefs Keya Wingfield of Keya & Co. and Justin Ross of JC Desserts from Food Network's "Spring Baking Championship."
Urban Hang Suite, Richmond Black Restaurant Experience (which wrapped up Sunday), JewFro and recent pop-up turned brick-and-mortar Sprezza also garnered mentions.
Why it matters: A decade ago, it seemed like Richmond was being named the next hot food town every other week after the openings of restaurants like The Roosevelt, Stella’s, Peter Chang’s, Heritage, Rappahannock, L’Opossum and Metzger Bar.
- We’re back, baby.
