This week: Five local chefs share their favorite Thanksgiving recipes–from the traditional to the unique, two restaurants make a quick flip to new owners and concepts, the Elby Awards have been announced, and the inaugural Virginia Moonshine Festival comes to town this weekend.
Richmond restaurateur Hamooda Shami is bringing Nate Gutierrez’s signature tacos to Charlottesville. His newest restaurant, Yearbook Taco, which opened last month, is a reworking of the Don’t Look Back concept with the same favorite recipes, updated specials, and a brand new theme.
Carytown is a hub of new restaurant activity with a new Indian restaurant that just opened, and two more following close behind.
This week saw Pearl Raw Bar open in The Fan, the 70-year-old Weiman’s Bakery close, and the owner of Don’t Look Back picked up a third restaurant spot on the 2900 block of Cary.
Not satisfied with two restaurants in Carytown, Hamooda Shami is opening a third, we check out the new outdoor digs of a popular Fan restaurant, and the best of RVA’s dining scene get dressed up for this weekend’s big award show.
If you haven’t seen Nate’s Taco Truck at a farmers’ market or on a familiar sidewalk, you’re not the only one. The beloved taco master has put the temporary brakes on his taco truck. Why and for how long will Richmond be without it?
One of the owners of New York Deli is opening a new restaurant in Carytown. It’s no ordinary Mexican restaurant, however, as it will feature food designed and prepared by Nate Gutierrez, founder of Nate’s Taco Truck.
The food gods have been super busy this week. First, we broke the news about Nate’s tacos making a return, then we found out about that public outcry kept Buddy’s in the Fan, and now we hear that Pasture is open for lunch. Here’s all this week’s food news that’s fit to eat.
Last month, Richmond mourned the loss of Nate’s Taco Truck Stop in Jackson Ward. Now, according to his new business partner, Nate will have a permanent location in Carytown and will once again have a brick-and-mortar in which to sling tacos.
