Be prepared to wait in line to check out Richmond's favorite diner. Locals often bring lawn chairs and games to pass the time while waiting for their chance to try the upscale, contemporary selections at this quirky eatery. This is the place for brunch for everything from huevos rancheros to the signature Devil's Mess kitchen-sink omelet. Although the vibe is straight out of the '50s, with personal jukeboxes in every booth, the food is strictly 21st century, with contemporary
takes on Southern classics, as well as global offerings like Thai spicy shrimp. Try the mac 'n' cheese with oyster mushrooms, asparagus, and foie gras butter or the pan-seared venison with black grapes and Yorkshire pudding. The dinner menu changes every three weeks, although the most popular lunch and breakfast offerings are always available.
