Good eats near Richmond?
Wife and I will be driving SC to NY. It looks like Richmond is about halfway. Any good eats within ten or so miles from 95? Thanks.
What kind of food are you interested in?
I have really enjoyed the Black Sheep (http://www.theblacksheeprva.com/downl...) the last few times I've been in the area. I also had brunch at Stronghill Dining Company on a trip recently, and thought it was very good. Julep's is also a favorite of my family.
I have a few friends who have really enjoyed Acacia and Mezzaine, though I haven't been myself just yet.
Balliceaux, Cafe Rustica, and Millie's Diner have all gotten good reviews here lately, too.
There's a thread with several recommendations here at http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/755059.

Okay, something to work with. :)
For Italian you won't go wrong with Edo's Squid or Mamma Zu's, both well within your range and both with interesting cuisine. For local foods you'll want to look at Six Burner, which for a place that's on the casual side does a very good job. To toot my neighborhood's horn (Church Hill), there's the Roosevelt, which does fabulous nouveau southern cuisine. It just opened and already people are going nuts over it (and it's about a mile and a half from 95). Hope that helps!
