Taking a careful approach to reopening, several restaurants in Richmond, Virginia, have slowly eased back into indoor dining. Now they’re preparing for a joyful summer in which friends want to gather, dine out, and make up for lost time. Several new restaurants, like taqueria TBT El Gallo and West African-tinged Southern spot Lillie Pearl, opened with odds stacked against them in 2020 but have managed to hold their own. Fine-dining fixtures like L’Opossum, Longoven, and Brenner Pass, plowed through the pandemic and have reopened for on-site dining. From the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts to a weekend tubing on the James River, Richmond has plenty of diversions to keep visitors busy during non-eating hours. But the food itself is worthy of a trip.
