I’m not sure anyone except me refers to it as the Capitol District but that’s really what the neighborhood around the Virginia state capitol in Richmond should be called. Some very cool restaurants like Rapphannock (above) have popped up, just a few blocks from the Thomas-Jefferson-designed capitol building where Steven Speilberg shot a ton of scenes for his Oscar-nominated movie “Lincoln” last year. The story I wrote about the area for The New York Times comes out in print tomorrow but here’s an early peek at it online. Woohoo!
Great mens shirts at Ledbury, which I mentioned in this gift guide.
