Dining in Richmond

A few weekends ago I headed to Richmond, VA to meet up with my old college roomies for a fun filled time.  We always have a blast every time we get together. We all can go months without  talking to eachother as life tends to get in the way; however when we finally get the chance to meet up, it is like time never happened.  Any who.. besides the amazing company I have when visiting Richmond, one of my favorite things are their amazing restaurants.  Every single place I have dined at in Richmond has been spectacular.  

On Friday night Allie, Ashley and I dined at a place I had heard about many a times from Ashley (the Richmond hostess with the mostess) and I had been dying to try: {COMFORT

The restaurant specializes in good old fashioned comfort food (shocker) however with a little more sophistication.  We shared a bottle of wine and drooled over what to order. After much debate we all agreed to let eachother try our choices.  I ordered the pulled pork BBQ, Allie the pork chops and Ashley the meatloaf.  All of the entrees were delish, however the meatloaf is probably the best I have ever had! {sorry Dad} I loved how it was topped off with mushrooms. Now to the sides… Allie and I both got the mecca of comfort sides- mac & cheese- and also tried the well renowned squash casserole, while Ashley went for the brussels sprouts, potatoes au gratin and roasted beets. Every. single. side. was delectable.  Above the greatness of the food, the atmosphere was wonderful and I loved the use of mason jars as water glasses. I will be revisiting Comfort for sure!

When Andrea arrived on Saturday morning- we all headed for brunch at the {Sidewalk Cafe}. We walked into a crowded small dive restaurant and waited at the bar with a pitcher of mimosas.  Right off the bat I could tell this was a fun place and popular among locals. Once seated we took our time ordering food and may or may not have downed a pitcher or two of mimosas. {which by the way was only $10 for a huge pitcher!!!!} I ordered the Eggs Edwina which was an english muffin w/ tomatoes, bacon, fried eggs and fontina cheese all with a hearty side of breakfast potatoes. I was pleasantly surprised on how fresh and delectable my dish was.  On top of everything- the prices were extremely reasonable.

If you are looking for a fun, delicious and wallet friendly place to brunch while visiting RVA. Head over to Sidewalk Cafe in the fan!

The rest of the day was spent hanging out and catching up. When night came around we ordered pizza in and had some more friends come over for some fun before heading out for the night to {Social 52}for a few drinks.  {which by the way has some yummy late night cheese/bacon fries if you are hungry} Here are some pics from the night:
