A Night to Celebrate Virginia


A couple of months ago, Rappahannock Restaurant in Richmond, Virginia, was honored as one of Esquire magazine’s Best New Restaurants, and the great state of Virginia was named “Food Region of the Year.” To celebrate, Rappahannock hosted an event showcasing a selection of fantastic chefs and purveyors.
