    Oof. WHO judges these things?? I was just at Lemaire last night for my second try and the food is consistently mediocre. I do like the way someone refolds my napkin every time I leave the table but I probably won’t go back. I suspect Richmond’s undiscovered talent is Samuel Baker of the Hermitage Grill and SOTJ Farmers’ Market.
