Italian Restaurant
$$
“Probably the best brunch in Richmond, at least according to Derek. We hosted our brunch after our wedding here. Super classy restaurant at night (a European Bistro). Located in the Gallery Arts District near other bar/restaurants like Comfort, Max's on Broad, and Tarrant's -- so it's the perfect spot for a romantic date before heading out to the nearby art galleries. Especially recommended on First Fridays, when all the galleries along this section of Broad St are open until 9PM. 5 min Uber.”
