I was in Richmond for a visit, and wanted to treat my gracious hosts to a nice dinner. When they informed me about this tiny new restaurant, I was intrigued. Since it only takes reservation if we can be there at 5 pm, we were there on the dot. It is so small that there are only 11 seats at the five tables ( we took the only corner table which seats 3), and six barstools at the bar. My first thought was, how do they manage to stay in business?
The bartender/ waiter was very helpful, and we waited in anticipation. First, we shared an appetizer, ravioli with yellow squash as the stuffing, it was so good that I wanted to dip the bread to soak up the sauce. My guests ordered the Monk fish, and I had Rockfish for our entrees. My Rockfish was the best I had ever in the U.S.: crisp skin outside and tender meat inside, with just the right combination of the flavors; a sophisticated presentation rivals some of the top restaurants in NYC or DC.
Then, we shared a pear crisp for dessert. I had to confess that when it comes to dessert I am a chocoholic and creme brulee fan; but I will convert for this dish, and have the pear crisp all to myself next time when I am in town!
