The Roosevelt named Restaurant of the Year

When owner Kendra Feather first thought about the project, she conjured a certain four-term first lady with peace-activist tendencies and feeding programs. So Feather, who nourishes a devoted segment of Richmond diners at Ipanema Cafe and Garnett’s Cafe in the Fan, honors Eleanor Roosevelt in spirit — and Lee Gregory, a star among the city’s chefs, in partnership.

Their collaboration is unusually focused and intentional, giving the neighborhood an affordable meal in pleasant company, with no false notes to be found.

For that spirit, and for riding a culinary revival that respects the flavors of the region without pandering to the obvious, our reviewers name the Roosevelt as Style Weekly’s 2012 Restaurant of the Year.

This follows the restaurant on the roundabout being recognized as Richmond’s Best New Restaurant at the Richmond Magazine Elby’s Awards.

Well, your regulars knew this all along! But seriously, the whole staff deserves this recognition. Every time we visit (usually late) we have amazing food, inventive cocktails and sweet service. It’s such a treasure to have in our neighborhood! Keep up the great work.
