Best New Restaurants 2017


Richmond may be the state capital, but for those in the know, it’s Virginia’s capital of dining as well. The food scene is only getting stronger, and this year our team of roughly 20 spread out across the region to visit dozens of restaurants that opened between April 16, 2016, and April 15, 2017. Check out our top picks among the new kids on the block, plus a look at the latest dining trends, chefs stepping into the spotlight, our best bowls around town and one chef's journey in opening a second restaurant.
