4 new Richmond-area restaurants to visit right now and more | To eat

By Megan Marconyak Special Envoy

New restaurants continue to enter the scene like pit beef in the Fan and fried chicken in the Short Pump, and existing restaurants continue to expand their services. Here is your latest list of results.

Bell Greek (7011 Three Chopt Road): The new location of The Village shopping center is Bell Greek’s third location – the other two are in the south side. The menu offers hearty portions of Greek favorites with on-site dining, a patio, online take-out orders, and friendly service. Try the Greek fries platter, which includes fresh, crispy fries topped with gyro meat, tzatziki, chopped tomatoes, feta cheese and house dressing.

Hand-Cut Chili Cheese Fries from Get Tight Lounge in The Fan. Vegan varieties are also available.

Get Tight (1104 W. Main St.): This funky new fan spot features a retro 70s vibe, a spacious patio, and an emphasis on Baltimore-style pit beef. Get a beef sandwich or a vegan beet sandwich and other comfort food – the chili and cheese fries are a must (a vegan chili is also available). Get Tight stays open until 2 a.m. on the weekends, also offering plenty of beer, an interesting cocktail menu, and shaved ice for soft drinks. Don’t miss the Oaxaca Negroni project, which replaces gin with mezcal in the classic three-part cocktail for a smoky, satisfying libation. Also follow on Instagram at @gettightlounge; we recently grabbed a $5 beef and mushroom sauce sandwich advertised only there.

Hangry Joe’s Hot Chicken (11624 W. Broad St.): The latest Korean fusion fried chicken joint location from the owners of Sweet Frog just opened at Short Pump and we’re hearing rave reviews about the freshly fried chicken in sauce. Also choose from a selection of sides, smoothies and Southern slushes.

Pies and Cakes Bakery (701 Clay St.): The take-out dessert bakery specializing in cakes, pies, cupcakes and cookies featuring Southern flavors and traditions with a modern twist recently opened in Carver. Chastity Hise is in charge of the sweets, and her husband Russell also hosts sourdough pizza pop-ups with a recipe he’s spent years perfecting.

Now with booze, Lucky Whale (2028 W. Cary St): The Chinese, Japanese and Thai fusion restaurant recently received its liquor license and offers a full selection of beers, wines, affordable craft cocktails and boozy boba tea. Triple Threat with Lunazul Tequila, Triple Sec, Peach and Lemon is a pleasant and balanced summer drink. In terms of food, try the soft shell crab appetizer which features light and crispy fried soft shell bites topped with peppers, onions and fresh basil.


Blueberry Lemon French Toast at Jubilee in Manchester offers a sweet start with French bread, blueberry compote, lemon mousse and powdered sugar. It is available for brunch on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
