While in Richmond on business, colleagues told me this was a place I had to check out. I showed up hoping I could get a seat, having no clue that reservations are being taken weeks in advance, I happened to meet Ricardo, the owner on the street and since I was dining alone, he managed to squeeze me in at the back and the improvised chef's table. What an amazing, amazing experience. I got to chat with Mamun (sorry if I spelled this wrong!) who is part of the kitchen team, and who acted as my Italian-English translator, and see all the food being plated for guests, fresh from the kitchen. The food, all 8 or 9 courses of it, was excellent. Seafood, risotto, pasta, lamb, 2 desserts - all delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling to or living in the area. Thanks to Ricardo and staff again for an amazing night!
