Start salivating now. Richmond Restaurant Week is coming Monday, October 26 through Sunday, November 1. And it’s just about perfect for those of us in the Fan because (by my count) a full 7 of the participating restaurants are in the Fan:
Acacia, Bacchus, deLux, Helen’s, Rowland Fine Dining, Six Burner, Verbena
That means one restaurant per night for a week. Sure, it’ll set you back $175.63 (plus drinks and tip), but it will mean $14.63 for the Central Virginia Food Bank (assuming my math’s right). And you’ll get sample some of the best restaurants Richmond has to offer.
Of course, when you see the full restaurant list, you might be tempted to venture outside of the Fan, too. I won’t hold it against you.
In case you’re unfamiliar with Restaurant Week, here’s the deal:
3 course prix fixe meal for $25.09. For every meal, the restaurant donates $2.09 to the Central Virginia Food Bank. It’s in its eighth year and it’s organized by the folks at Acacia Midtown–Dale and Aline Reitzer.
