Where to Eat Now 2018


This year, new breakfast and lunch spots  inspired us to make time (and room) for both of those easily skippable meals, and pizza made a comeback. We watched restaurateurs take new turns, while others journeyed from pop-up to brick-and-mortar. And the snack bar got a huge upgrade at arcades, bowling alleys and shuffleboard emporiums.

Here’s what our team of writers considered praiseworthy in a field of newcomers that emerged between July 1, 2017, and Sept. 1, 2018, along with a sneak peek of what’s still to come. 

The Richmond dining scene has pizza popping up left and right, and we gladly tracked down the top pie emporiums. more
