Four stars for The Roosevelt

Almost a year to the day after first word of The Roosevelt, Dana Craig serves up a 4-star review (along with a slide show) in the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

Feather has completely renovated the old Que Pasa space, yet the result is a bygone, speakeasy-like feel. Worn church pews, 1800s-era maps covering pale blue stenciled walls and dark wood galore make The Roosevelt feel like it’s dripping in history, not an eatery that opened just months ago.

On the other hand, Gregory offers up what appears to be Richmond’s signature, a Southern-inspired menu, but he keeps things fresh by combining flavors in adventurous yet aptly balanced ways and changing menu details frequently.


Frankly, I’m shocked Feather’s knack for crafting genuinely unique eateries and Gregory’s ability to create limitless varieties of beautifully composed dishes didn’t cross paths before The Roosevelt. These two go together like cornmeal and collards.
