Shockoe Restaurant Week Restaurants

Three-course, prix fixe menu for $25.14 at restaurants throughout the area.

You all know how 2014 Spring Restaurant Week works. Between April 21st – 27th chefs have created a three-course, prix fixe menu for $25.14 per person for the entire week. The restaurants donate $2.14 per meal sold to FeedMore, the core hunger-relief organization for Central Virginia made up of the Central Virginia Food Bank and Meals on Wheels.

Below are links to the local restaurants that are participating so you can check out the menu and to the right is the item that I’ve got my greedy little eyes on.

    Hardshells I and II, Pearl, and Water Coastal are a chain of restaurants. The last two don’t share a whole menu with the first two, but the core of the offerings in all of the restaurants is all the same. It’s a great way to run a business, and consistency is improved, but the craft really suffers. The process of making these things has been engineered so they are able to hire less skilled food preparers, and then buy everything in bulk. All these things lower their costs.

    These are still some of the highest priced restaurants in the area. If they’re going to save so much by buying and preparing in bulk and lowering the quality of the end result, then the price should reflect that. But people don’t know any better, so they still pay exorbitant prices for it, so the profits are enormous. Rappahannock and Roosevelt might even be less expensive overall. The other restaurants owned by the same company (Daily Kitchen and Hill Cafe) share some supply chain costs with these four, but are more distinct.
