RICHMOND, Va. — After conquering the realms of bread and pizza, a local restaurateur is taking on another carbohydrate. Billy Fallen is preparing to open another namesake business, Billy Pasta, within Ellwood Thompson’s grocery store at 4 N. Thompson St. The concept is Fallen’s third starch-focused venture, joining Billy Bread and Billy Pie.
