Richmond VA for wine ...

  • c

Will be in Richmond Saturday the 7th of October. Want to eat where there is a strong,classical, wine list.
By classical I mean, Burgundy, Barolo, Bordeaux. Any suggestions?

      Ugh! The Wine Dictator. Anyway, the Frog and the Redneck is a remarkable restaurant, New American cooking with a fine reverence for local ingredients, and a pretty amazing list of mostly American wines.

        I recently ate at the Frog and the Redneck for the first time. I am from Baltimore. His crabcake recipe which I first found published in Gourmet magazines in 1994 (May or June) is the best anywhere. I had a couple of good things at the Frog, but a couple of items were SEVERELY over salted: tuna carpaccio and a soup. I understand his fondness for sea salt, but this was WAY too much. I very much like the attitude of the place.
