The Black Sheep - Richmond, VA
Road Trip restaurant pick! On a Sunday at about 7:00pm, there were a few tables open (no reservations here) in this fairly small, adorable, comfortable, nice restaurant, you know, one of those places that has the perfect balance of down-to-earth casual, while still being a nice gastropub.
|"Arepas de Queso y Patito - Traditional fried masa flatbread, stuffed with queso & roasted duck leg meat. Served with escabeche & poblano cream sauce" - $9.00 - Oh yeah, this was delicious. I mean, obviously.|
It seems clear that everything on this menu will be a hit. I decided, based on this restaurant, that I would like to live in Richmond for a while, at least if I could live in this neighborhood that's apparently called "The Fan."
|Apparently some ass wipes have been stealing their fun little artworks 'cause this was written in the restroom.. twice. Come on, people.|
|Is this not the cutest logo?|
|No drafts, but the bottle selection is nice, with lots of local beers.|
|Like this Devil's Backbone Vienna Lager from Lexington, VA.|
|And of course they had to have this, all the way from England.|
