Anyone been recently? Is it worth the drive from Richmond?

      Not sure that's totally accurate.
      The chefs and sommelier have departed. But they may still reopen (always closed at this time of year).

        The Email they sent out last week said "closed" and will not reopen after their usual winter closing.

          You are correct - I misunderstod the phrase "Our future plans for Town House...are undetermined at this time"
          They are closed.

            Yes, with the restaurant data base being removed I wanted to update the threads I found. You'd hate someone driving a ways assuming it's open...Most would prob. have tried to make reservations, but better safe!

      My husband and I went there for dinner this past Wednesday night and stayed at the Farmhouse (which they own). It was a fabulous meal and wonderful time. Staying at the Farmhouse was the icing on the cake.

          My husband wore khaki slack and a button up shirt. I don't think he wore a jacket.

            Agree - smart casual!

          I'm driving from Charlotte next month - so I think it's worth it!

            And it was in my top 3 meals in the US.
            Absolutely spectacular!

            I was there in April and it was still just as fantastic as before!

            Not only did everything taste wonderful, but it delights on so many other levels. I consider it very well worth my 4 hour drive.

              My husband and a fishing buddy went last month and said it is worth the trip, but that it's a long trip. They had a fabulous time.

              We are trying to figure a way to get there in the fall. They have a farmhouse close by they have made into two luxury rooms for lodging and they will drive you to and from dinner.

                It's been 18 months or so. I wouldn't drive that far just for dinner, but if you have a reason to visit Abingdon or make a weekend of it, it's a wonderful dinner. Then again, I won't drive far for much.
