If you live in an apartment in Glen Allen, VA you may have enjoyed the first Dishcrawl in August. If you did and you loved it, or if you were sorry to miss it, you have another opportunity. A second Dishcrawl is slated for Sept. 24 in Shockoe Bottom. Dishcrawl takes participants on walks that stop at four neighborhood restaurants.
“Richmond is a small city with a big-city palate. Restaurants around town are on the same caliber as those you can find in larger cities like D.C., L.A. and New York,” said Dishcrawl brand manager Caitlyn Williams.
Tours are offered about every five weeks and cost $45 each. The ticket includes a fixed menu and the chance to rub elbows with restaurant owners and chefs.
Bianco chose Carytown for the inaugural Dishcrawl because it is “a unique location in Richmond, it is possible to do four restaurants in one night and it is safe to walk at night,” Bianco said.
The upcoming tour in the Bottom has sold most of its 40 available tickets. Building suspense is part of Dishcrawl’s marketing strategy, so the restaurants have not been disclosed.
The names of the restaurants are being kept secret. All ticket holders will be notified of meeting location via email, 48 hours prior to the event. Are you ready to experience a new culinary adventure while taking in the past of Downtown Richmond?
