Richmond Restaurant Week returns from Monday, April 24-Sunday, April 30. With 34 participating restaurants, there’s a lot on the menu.

Each participating restaurant will offer a three course, prix fixe meal for $35.23, with $5.23 of that going to Feed More. RRW has been working with the nonprofit since the culinary event began in 2001.

Fun fact: Every $1 donated to Feed More helps provide four meals, so enjoying one meal during Restaurant Week means feeding over 20 community members.

Now there’s just one question — where to go? Here are some of our picks, although there’s really no wrong answer. Pro tip: Click each restaurant name to make a reservation.

🐟 Fish-friendly

Alewife promises Crispy Gulf Shrimp in a green curry sauce and Arctic Char with roasted baby carrots and whipped labneh.

🍗 For carnivores

Try a crispy leg of duck, chicken thighs, or the steak frites at The Shaved Duck in Midlothian. At Jewfro you can enjoy lamb ribs, a za’atar tenderloin, or honey harissa chicken.


Restaurant Week features dozens of local restaurants, like Alewife.

🥗 Veggie lovers

Most of the menus we checked out had several vegetarian options, but we were intrigued by the pimento cheese fritters and zucchini noodles at Julep’s. Acacia will also have a sweet red pepper soup and fresh pasta with mushrooms and leeks.

🌶 Try something new

If you haven’t had a chance to try Conejo since it opened last summer, its special menu will include an Ensalada con Garbanzo with tahini green goddess dressing.

🌊 Enjoy the ambiance

The Boathouse and Island Shrimp Co. at Rocketts Landing will have you dining with a riverside view. See Richmond from above by making a reservation for the Q Rooftop.
