RICHMOND, Va. — Southern Living food writer Jennifer Cole recently ranked the top 100 places to eat in the South now. Four Richmond restaurants made the list:
- Comfort — 200 West Broad Street, Richmond, Va.
- Heritage — 1627 West Main Street, Richmond, Va.
- Peter Chang China Café — 11424 West Broad Street, Glen Allen, Va.
- The Roosevelt — 623 North 25th Street, Richmond, Va.
“The whole list is a mix of both established restaurants and newcomers in alphabetical order. For each restaurant in the top 100, I asked myself first and foremost ‘Is the food delicious?’ I then considered the restaurant’s relevance in the modern food landscape,” she said. “I took into account a chef’s technical skill and his or her creativity with ingredients. Geography obviously played a role; I included restaurants within the Southern Living coverage area (17 states plus DC). And I factored in the overall experience.”
