RVA Foodie Spotlight: Dessert Edition

by | Sep 17, 2020 | EAT DRINK

If there’s any activity our RVA Magazine team loves unanimously, it’s eating. And of all the dishes in the world, nothing tastes quite as good as the ones made right here in the River City. 

So in the spirit of eating ourselves into food comas in Richmond, we’re spotlighting our favorite local restaurants each week, with the best #RVAFoodie finds around town. We’ll be searching weekly for the best of delicious local food in our community, from amazing restaurants to chefs, food trucks, pop-ups, and more. Here are a few close-to-home favorites this week to follow on Instagram. 

If you’ve got an awesome restaurant to spotlight, reach out to [email protected]! Support local, RVA!

Cool Off With This Richmond Ice Cream Roundup
