Best Brunch: The Roosevelt in Richmond, Va.

The Roosevelt Richmond

Tucked in Richmond’s 18th-century Church Hill neighborhood this new tavern serves up solid Southern food. The Roosevelt does a great job of updating the comfort-food trend by starting with traditional Virginia food (sausage gravy, biscuits) and throwing in some trendy ones (kimchi, bacon-vodka) to come up with some new and delicious dishes.

We got cheese grits for Marguerite and ate them so quickly you can’t event see them in this photo. They came in a cute, mini-cast-iron pan. My burger had a fried egg, rooster-sauce mayo and caramelized-onion-and-bacon jam. Yum! Scott’s dish was the best, though. In the background you can see it: fried chicken thighs on top of potato cakes with sausage gravy and a slow-cooked egg with a runny yoke to blend it all together. Great combo of flavors.

  1. We had the fried chicken thigh this morning too! (plus the ricotta pancakes). My favorite restaurant in Richmond!
