We hope you had a nice Thanksgiving break, but while you were napping off your turkey, Richmond's dining scene was still going strong.

What's happening: Restaurant news. Lots of it from the last few days.

🍻 Hidden Wit Brewing Co. and its in-house restaurant opened last week in deep Chesterfield (in Moseley) at 21110 Hull Street Road.

🍕 Secret Squares is the latest restaurant to make the transition from pop-up to brick-and-mortar location.

🥦 Meanwhile, Tiny Vegan will soon make the transition from food cart to Carytown vegan restaurant. Stay tuned for details on that.

🧁 Frostings Bake Shop opened Monday under its new Lindsey Food Group owners and in its new location at 4336 Pouncey Tract Road in Short Pump.

🧆 Scott's Shawarma — the popular shawarma and Middle Eastern fast casual restaurant — is moving out of its OG Scott's Addition location in January for a space at 814 N. Robinson St. in the Fan, per BizSense.

  • The restaurant will keep the name after its move to the former Capital Burgers & Dogs spot, which apparently closed last month.
  • The new building will give the Scott's crew more room, and shawarma fans can expect an expanded menu once they're all settled.

🦪 Session is the new name for the former Rapp Session bar, the cocktail and small plates spot adjacent to Rappahannock restaurant that closed during the pandemic.

  • The owners are bringing it back with a tweaked concept, and it should make its debut in December, along with its holiday pop-up, Yuletide.

🛍 ICYMI, Stella's Grocery River Road location is now open daily at 5001 Huguenot Road (where River meets Huguenot).
