The Roosevelt

The Roosevelt is a neighborhood restaurant in a turn-of-the-last-century building in Church Hill, Richmond's oldest neighborhood. Its food is an untraditional celebration of the food of the South, served alongside a great wine list, a hearty roster of regional beers, and a selection of craft cocktails that'll knock your socks off.

Using almost exclusively local Virginia products in its food, The Roosevelt honors its state's agricultural history and harkens back to a more regional time. A time when food and drink were an expression of place, cultivated nearer the table and prepared with local knowledge and ingredients. As a result, the menu changes all the time, but make sure to get some solid Southern cornbread on your table. It comes with whipped maple butter.

Know someone who needs a night out but refuses to slow down long enough to actually take one? Get them a gift card as an oh-so-friendly-reminder to be nice to number one. Just want to treat yourself? Head over, order a top-notch cocktail like the I Was Never Given A Name, which is full of amaro and grapefruit and a coffee tincture - maybe you'll be the one to name it? Make it a date night with the whole roasted fish, some seasonal vegetables, and one of The Roosevelt's gorgeous desserts. We recommend the buttermilk panna cotta.
