Fodor's Review

Chef/owner Andy Howell is a star on the Richmond culinary scene. His latest success is a European bistro in the heart of downtown. Howell sources his ingredients regionally and whips up European comfort food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The roast chicken with vegetables will transport you to the south of France, while the schnitzel is pure Heidelberg. A wine bar and daily cheese plate specials make Café Rustica a great pre- or post-event stop, as well. Seating is limited, and they don't take reservations. Sundays are a bargain with prix-fixe deals.
