Richmond Restaurant Week October 22-28th 2007
by Shannon Timberlake
It's that time again, Richmond Restaurant Week!
Great chance to go and try your favorite restaurant or make a new favorite while helping the Central Virginia Food Bank.
Prix Fixe menu all week, $25.07 per person, with $2.07 each going to the Food Bank (tip not included, be generous, you're getting a great meal for a ridiculous price).
Reservations are definitely recommended, here are the numbers to call and websites to check out the menus beforehand. Over $13,000 raised last year, get out and see if we can't top that number this year!

Zed Café 5109 Lakeside Ave. www.zedcafeonline.com I just tried this last week, it is definitely on my list of restaurants next week. Relaxed and therapeutic environment, strong variety on the wine list (try the Conosur Pinot) and savory food. I highly recommend giving Zed Cafe a chance to be one of your favorites!
Zeus Gallery Café 201 N. Belmont Ave. Another Fan staple, romantic and cozy environment, DEFINITELY MAKE RESERVATIONS as seating is limited.
Give one, some or all a try next week, you will not be disappointed!
