We have been looking for a restaurant location for two years, and when we drove through Church Hill to look at the space for the first time, we knew our patience had paid off. The neighborhood, the people and the possibilities are exactly what we have been looking for. We not only want to open a restaurant, but participate in the evolution of Richmond, and the restaurant community. We are three hard working individuals, who are looking forward to putting our sweat equity, passion, and creative energy into our restaurant to better feed Richmond.
Peake (the “Dutch” in the name) describes the their vision of Dutch and Co. as a “kitchen-focused restaurant”. With the pedigree of chefs Perrow (Acacia) and Shriver (Aziza’s) behind the line, the food will be forefront. The chefs say that the ever-changing menu will be “contemporary American dishes influenced by regional products”. Dutch and Co. will be open for dinner Monday-Saturday, closing by 9:30PM at the latest.
Set in the downstairs of a recently-restored circa-1920 building, Dutch and Co. should have about 40 seats. They hope to open “as soon as possible”, though none of the interior build-out has gotten under way.
Some combination of Peake, Perrow, and Shriver will be at the Church Hill Association’s Community Picnic on Tuesday night, be sure and hit’em up and say hi.
