Dec 29, 2012 - Restaurants in Richmond

Richmond is the capital of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and it is a huge city, so the best way to move around Richmond and see the sights is with a charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coaches or school bus from Bus Charter Virginia. Traveling around Richmond becomes so much easier, and you get to see more, experience more and taste more with a charter bus.

Richmond is one of the oldest cities in America. Founded in 1607, it served as capital to the Confederate South during the Civil War. Today, Richmond is a bustling city that wears its Confederate past with pride. Largely rebuilt after the city was burned to the ground on the approach of Union troops, Richmond may not be as cosmopolitan as some U.S. cities, but retains it down south charm and manners.

After taking your charter bus into Richmond, you and your group may want to stop at Shockoe Bottom, in Richmond’s downtown. This is where you’ll find many of Richmond’s eateries and restaurants, offering a variety of familiar favorites. For a taste of what Richmond is all about stop at the Sidewalk Cafe on Main Street. This perpetually crowded place is worth the short wait. Remember to ask for a booth, even if it means waiting a little longer. The Sidewalk Cafe serves good food at reasonable prices, and worth visiting regularly for their inventive daily specials.

For a bit of old school Americana, get in your charter bus and scoot over to Galaxy Diner. Looking like it never left the 50s, the Galaxy Diner serves good old American favorites at appropriate prices. This place is a good place for the whole family to have a meal, and is conveniently located for the nearby Carytown shopping district.

For some delicious Mediterranean fare, drop by Bistro Twenty-Seven. Located on West Broad Street, local Chef Carlos Silva prepares specials ranging from Italian-sausage-stuffed quail to black-truffle marsala filet mignon to breaded flounded with shaved almonds. If you’re attending a show at The National, Richmond’s live music and event venue, walk into Gibson’s Grill. Featuring a rock themed atmosphere, Gibson’s serves Italian and American favorites.

Taking a charter bus and visiting the historic Church Hill district, have a meal at The Roosevelt. Styling itself as a neighborhood restaurant, The Roosevelt specializes in traditional Southern and Southern inspired cooking.
