The evolving list of new Richmond-area restaurants

Posted at 11:45 AM, Sep 07, 2018

RICHMOND, Va. — The question I get the most when it comes to Richmond dining is “Where can I go for [insert meal here] that’s newly opened?”

Just this morning, I’ve received seven of these questions.

And while I want to answer all of them, I REALLY DO, sometimes I just can’t.

So here you go, Richmond — every (or almost every) restaurant that has opened (or re-branded) in the Richmond-area so far in 2018 (in alphabetical order).
