RICHMOND, Va. — A select few in the Richmond restaurant industry have some new hardware to add to their kitchens. The fourth annual Elbys were dished out on Sunday evening as part of Richmond Magazine’s annual event to honor local restaurants and their owners and chefs. The event was held at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Author Jason Tesauro and Richmond Magazine’s food editor Stephanie Breijo were the hosts.

Taking the top prize – restaurant of the year – was Heritage at 1627 W. Main St. It opened in the Fan in 2012. Heritage chef and co-owner, Joe Sparatta, won chef of the year at the event. Sparratta also owns part of the recently opened Southbound on the Southside.
