Small and charming Jackson Ward favorite, Ettamae’s Cafe, will begin serving dinner April 1. From their press release:
After several requests from Ettamae’s regulars who range from students to City Council members, owners Matthew Morand and Laura Morand Bailey felt confident that the time was right. “Our daily special entrees were becoming such a big hit,” says Morand Bailey…”Our dinner menu will change frequently,” says Chef Morand. “I like to keep things fresh, both literally and metaphorically, so having the flexibility to change out dishes appeals to me.” Some of the types of dishes planned for dinner are homemade pizzas, slow-roasted meats, seafood, pasta, seasonal greens.
With the anticipated opening of the Hippodrome theater right next door, the restaurant is primed for extended hours. They are also quite close to several other downtown theaters, including The National, CenterStage, and Theater IV. The intimate, second-floor balcony was a favorite for brunch and now with the recent addition of microbrews and wine, will be a great place for drinks at the First Fridays Art Walk. The restaurant will be doing away with their weekday breakfast, but will soon add a Sunday brunch (and Richmond really is a brunch town, isn’t it?) Now, I hope they can just get their grill venting issues under control.
