What a great dining experience. My wife and I are in the process of relocating to Richmond and we heard about the restaurant at The Jefferson Hotel. It is an incredibly historic and beautiful hotel. We were told that the staircase in "Gone with the Wind" was inspired by the staircase at The Jefferson. The author was staying at The Jefferson when she wrote the book.
Anyway, back to the restaurant. The seven of us dining this particular evening elected to try several appetizers on the menu to pass around. Every one, especially the fried green tomatoes were amazing and all had a very creative spin from the usual. Chef Walter Bundy is a culinary genius. He is very creative and also uses some of his families favorite recipes which have been handed down from generation to generation. I was also surprised at how reasonably priced the meals were, including the wine. A meal of this caliber in the Cleveland, Ohio area, where we live now, would be 25% more expensive and would not likely offer the ambiance we found at the historic Jefferson Hotel Restaurant. All in all a great experience. We will become regulars.
