Owners Jessica and Josh Bufford promise a new restaurant concept in its place soon, though.
And the saddest news today is the announcement that the West End’s Estilo closed — for good. The restaurant brought fresh, lively pan-South American food to the local dining scene and was reenergized earlier this year when Magpie owner Owen Lane joined as a new partner with owners Jessica and Josh Bufford. Estilo received glowing reviews and won an Elby award for best new restaurant in 2014.
“We are proud of what we accomplished and so thankful for the patrons who have been adventurous with us as we tried and introduced new dishes and new ingredients to the Richmond area,” said Jessica Bufford in today’s press release.
The restaurant, which was located in the Village Shopping Center, opened in 2013. The Buffords say they’ll keep experimenting with new restaurant concepts in the near future.
