RICHMOND, Va. — The newest entrant into Richmond’s Southside dining scene is open for business.
Laura Lee’s opened Tuesday at 3410 Semmes Ave., left vacant in March by the short-lived White Horse Tavern.
The new restaurant is the latest addition to local restaurateur Kendra Feather’s collection of eateries across the city.
Feather owns three other restaurants and a bakery in Richmond. Her Ipanema Café opened in 1998 on Grace Street, followed by Garnett’s Cafe in the Fan in 2009. In Church Hill, she and Lee Gregory opened The Roosevelt in 2011 and WPA Bakery with David Rohrer a year later.
Laura Lee, named for Feather’s mother, has a menu crafted by Chef Josh Loeb that includes dishes such as Chesapeake blue crab with grilled corn, chowchow and corn cakes, ham and cider sausage, and hominy and tomatoes.
