What you eat at Lunch & Supper is smoked, cooked, or brined in house; vegetables and herbs are grown just outside the beer garden. Since it opened in 2012 in Richmond’s burgeoning Scott’s Addition neighborhood, this three-meal-a-day restaurant has set the highest standards of modern, farm-to-table food service. Dine indoors or on the patio (where you are surrounded by the garden) and you can expect an adventure in good eating.

The one big problem, at least for us travelers passing through, is the size of the menu. It is many pages long, and every page holds multiple temptations. A few that I did NOT get a chance to sample, but wish I had: pork rind nachos, catfish BLT, bacon-wrapped meat loaf with tomato honey bourbon glaze, cast-iron seared salmon.

What I have eaten, and love: crab cakes dressed with very spicy Sriracha aioli, house-smoked pulled pork on corn cakes with Brussels-sprouts slaw, ham-laced pimento cheese with crisp pork rinds on the side, macaroni & cheese larded with bacon.

Did I mention drinks? Beer, wine, and normal cocktails are available, but being a kitschy sort of guy, I am mesmerized by such silly libations as a Peachy Keen Bellini (peach, ginger, prosecco), an unbelievably aromatic Green Gatsby (green tea, gin, peach & herb syrup, lemon, cardamom bitters, prosecco and a sprig of fresh rosemary), and a warm Who Let the Dogs Out (rum, amaretto, coffee, whipped cream).

All this inventive, intriguing, and well-crafted fare is enjoyed in the most casual beer-garden / tavern setting, where the staff is as hospitable as they are hip.
