Keevil, The Roosevelt nominated for Elbys

The nominations for the 2013 Richmond Magazine Elbys were announced yesterday, and like last year, the East End is well represented.

A number of area restaurants have been nominated for the awards. The Roosevelt has been nominated for “Upscale Casual” and “Cocktail Program”, and Lee Gregory is up for “Chef of the Year” (along with Dale Reitzer of Acacia Mid-town, Tim Bereika of Secco Wine Bar, and Peter Chang of Peter Chang China Café). Shockoe’s Arcadia and Julep’s are both up for “Fine Dining Restaurant”.

Both Paul Keevil (Millie’s, LuLu’s, Tio Pablo) and Kendra Feather (The Roosevelt, WPA Bakery, Garnett’s, Ipanema Cafe) have been nominated as “Restaurateur of the Year”.

The Elbys, named for renowned French Chef and Richmonder Paul Elbling, will be given out on Sunday evening, February 10, 2013 at a dinner at the VMFA. Net ticket proceeds will benefit the nonprofit Shalom Farms, Slow Food RVA,
Tricycle Gardens and the VMFA Foundation.

Last year’s “Rising Culinary Star” Caleb Shriver, with partners Michelle Peake and Phillip Perrow, will be opening the eagerly anticipated Dutch and Co. “soon” at 27th and Marshall.
