The Lair offers: a coffee bar, smoothies, Tex-Mex, pizza, and breakfast. The space was originally intended to be a commissary for local food trucks, so you can kinda of see why there are a ton of seemingly unrelated options. The Lair will still do the commissary thing but has also evolved into a restaurant in its own right.

Tazza Kitchen sits in the old Short Pump Cafe Caturra location and is run by one of the original founders of Cafe Caturra, Jeff Grant. Their menu features wood-fired pizza and a bunch of Mediterranean-inspired fare. You can get an idea for some of the food by checking out their Instagram.

Looks like the old Boo’s Brown Bag spot has a new tenant: Chow House. The newest resident of this semi-cursed location will offer a “large-portion menu of Mexican and Asian food.” While it sounds weird, the fry bread tacos and spicy crab rangoon work pretty well together!

Burger Bach! Home of delicious french fries, burgers, and (presumably) people and things from New Zealand! The once Carytown-bound burger joint opened a second location out in West Broad Village—which is that slightly creepy town-within-a-town out in Short Pump. Head out there, and order as many fries and sauces as you can fit in your stomach.

Located adjacent to what we once called “the bus depot on Robinson” but now call “that awesome collection of street art,” this is a beer-focused project involving some of the folks from Commercial Taphouse. They’ve got brews, Sausage Craft sausages, cheeses–basically everything you need in life.

Max’s is a Belgian-themed restaurant owned by the folks that own Tarrant’s down the street. Menu options range from foie gras and steak tartare, to fish and chips and a turkey vegetable burger. You can probably find a little something for everyone–especially if that something is loads of Belgian-style beers.
