Carrabba's Italian Grill

I know. It's a chain. But a good one. Redolent memories of the New Jersey surburbs drift lasciviously through my mind whilst I quaff an impeccable Peach Sangria whipped up by an inventive, charming mixologist named Bob. Start with the small plate "Meatballs & Ricotta." Next, order an appetizer of "Wood-Fired Italian Wings." Mama-Mia! For the entre, the Spaghetti with Bolognese sauce will remaster your palette. But, eclipse your plebeian peers by topping it with meatballs - lots of them. For those who prefer their expressions of hedonism in a setting both subtle and seductive, Carrabba's is exquisite.

JKogi is a million times better than Zzaam

If you want delicious street style korean food then try Jkogi! If you wan to pay $4.50 for frozen pork buns you can buy for $.50 a pop at New Grand Mart go right ahead and order from Zzaam, if not, Jkogi's stuff is homemade and everything you wish Zzaam was!

Rooftop Bars

How many rooftop bars does Richmond have? And why is Quirk so non-quirky? That place is prep central - expensive and boring. The people - just so very boring.
