Alright Nomsters, if you follow us on instagram, you already know that we spent time in Richmond a few weeks back. It was great timing because Fire, Flour & Fork was going on, and we got to attend two really cool events: their Wine and Design tour and their Thanksgiving Throwdown.
Wine and Design tour came first, and it lasted for about 2.5 hours. It was $55 per person, and we got to check out four fabulous restaurants in the area: L’Opossum, Perch, Longoven, and The Daily. We were so beyond impressed with the interior of each place, and we loved hearing each chef talk about their restaurant. They beamed with pride as they discussed various design elements, and you could really feel their passion as they spoke. It’s hard to pick favorites so we won’t, but we definitely want to go back for full dining experiences the next time we’re in Richmond.
Now, $55 may seem expensive, but if you’re a wine drinker, you are getting serious bang for your buck. Each place gave us a FULL glass of quality wine (different kinds from each place) and there were delish hors d’oeuvres to munch on throughout. We didn’t get too many pictures of food (due to some issues with lighting), but we really loved the mushroom skewers at Longoven and the pizza at Perch.
The Thanksgiving Throwdown happened later that evening, and it was one of the best food events we’ve ever been to. It was $60 per person but so worth it. They had Virginia chefs, brewers and distillers take on “rivals” from Massachusetts to see who would come up on top this holiday season!
There were SO many food and drink stations – we felt like we died and went to Thanksgiving heaven. Again, we didn’t get to take too many pictures because it was dim inside, but trust us when we say you DEFINITELY want to go next year. We’d happily drive down to Richmond again to attend this delicious shindig.
Anddd that’s a wrap, Nomsters! We hope you enjoyed reading about the two Fire, Flour & Fork events we attended in Richmond, VA. We know it’s a year away, but we’re already excited for next year’s festivities. Make sure you make a note in your calendars – it’ll be from Oct. 31 to Nov. 3rd so we hope to see you there, friends.
