• Southern food and mezcal

    Last night we were invited for dinner at The Roosevelt. We have been buddies with those dudes for years and they are holding it down. The Roosevelt is located in Richmond's oldest neighborhood, Church Hill. They are doing southern food with untraditional flair. Catfish, chicken wings and grits boldly representing southern classics fit for a god. 

    James Beard nominee Lee Gregory is the man behind it all. It goes with our being said that he can not do it alone. Mark and Scott Lewis from Danville, Va are right there with him. I met these three while they were working at Six Burner, a Richmond beauty that is no longer with us. I lived right behind Six Burner and thats when I got to know these boys. We ate just about everything and drank just as much. I think there was 11 plates between 4, glasses excluded. 

    It was a good night, looking forward to next time.
