The Best at This Moment
From a modern take on a Jewish deli to a still-too-under-the-radar Indian gem at Short Pump Town Center, the 25 restaurants on this list represent the best the region has to offer right now in service, consistency and quality, as culled by our team of food writers and reviewers, who also highlighted insider tips and people you need to know.
RESTAURANT OF THE YEAR
11800 W. Broad St., Suite 910 (Short Pump Town Center), 804-364-1111
You’ll find dishes from India’s north, south, east and west, in what amounts to a dazzling armchair tour of the richness of the subcontinent’s various regions.
Owner Sunny Baweja, arguably the most gracious, engaging host in all of Richmond. Don’t be surprised if, even on the busiest night, he swings by your table.
INSIDER TIP: Richmond is rife with brunches, but none quite like this one: $20 brings three courses, including a witty, rewarding take on chicken and waffles.
Taking that friend who professes not to like Indian food. Because, as Baweja’s restaurant exuberantly demonstrates, there’s so much more to Indian food than just curries.
Lehja is one of the few places in the country where you can sample, say, a wonderful Grover Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc from the Nandi Hills region.

For many people, myself included, being presented with an Indian restaurant's menu can bring on the beginnings of a panic attack. It's amazing how much complexity and variety can be packed into a single country's cuisine...thingstodo.timesdispatch.com/henrico-va/venues/show/2507425-lehjahttp://thingstodo.timesdispatch.com
