Inside Stanley's, Richmond's new Philly-themed bar
Stanley's, Richmond's Philly-themed "hoagie emporium," is now open in the former Robin Inn space at 2601 Park Ave. in the Fan.
Why it matters: It's the first non-Robin Inn restaurant in 60 years to go into the space at the corner of Park and Robinson.
- And it's from a pair of owners connected to some awesome Richmond restaurants: James Kohler (former co-owner of Brenner Pass and Black Lodge and former bar manager at Saison) and Mike Epps (co-owner of Cobra Burger).
Stanley's serves cheesesteaks, hoagies and sandwiches — eight types (including roast pork, eggplant or chicken cutlet, smoked whitefish salad, roasted turkey, $16 each), a tomato pie ($6) and three salad choices (Caesar, wedge or antipasto, $12-$16).
- The wine list is elevated and Old World dominated and the beer list of high and lowbrow mix, which is exactly as the restaurant is — simple food, done well.
Of note: Its cocktail list is delayed because of a delayed mixed beverage license, and it's running a limited menu for opening weekend.
- Stanley's opened quietly Wednesday afternoon and is now open Tuesday- Saturday, 4pm-midnight.
What's next: Lunch hours, cocktails and more Philly sandwiches to love.
