It may not be as bucolic as Charleston, nor as glitzy as Atlanta, but Richmond, Virginia, is a city with lofty but earnest culinary aspirations—and should be your next Southern food destination.

A new, small but passionate group of chefs is serving upmarket food and drink in laid-back settings in Virginia's capital city, surrounded by America's original wine country. Sure, you'll find Southern staples like pimento cheese and Ritz crackers around town, but there's also some seriously delicious food coming out of restaurants like The Roosevelt, Lemaire and Peter Chang China Café.

Our City Guide tells you where to eat, drink and stock up in RVA, as it's affectionately known.
