A new brewery for Richmond and more dining news
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.
- The massive brewery (more than 10,000 square feet on 10 acres, per BizSense) is serving up 18 of its brews, plus a casual sandwich and small plates menu ($9-$17) Wednesday through Sunday.
- Chef/owner Willoughby Obenchain and his Detroit-style pizzas are moving into 306 N. 29th St. in Church Hill early next year and should open in spring, the Times-Dispatch reports.
- The largely takeout spot is taking over the Nile space after it closes in early January, just a few buildings down from Honey Baked Bee. You can catch them in their current The Kitchen Classroom space until then.
🧆 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).
