RICHMOND, Va. -- It is a question often asked every night around Richmond.

"Where should we eat tonight?"

Now imagine trying to choose 20 places to eat.

Such is the tough [read: fabulous] life of David Hagedorn.

Hagedorn, a chef and restaurant owner turned food critic and writer for publications like the Washington Post, Bethesda Magazine, and Arlington Magazine, visited Richmond last fall for a piece he wrote titled Where to Eat and Drink in Richmond.

Before writing the piece, Hagedorn visited nearly two dozen Richmond restaurants and ate, and ate, and ate.

Hear all about which restaurants he loved and why he thinks they make Richmond such a special place to dine.
