Blue Wheeler will be Lee Gregory’s Alewife

Here’s a detail to update the recent roundup of restaurants planned for the area: the former Blue Wheeler will be Lee Gregory’s Alewife.

From Karri Peifer at Richmond.com:

The restaurant is Alewife, a fish-focused restaurant with the sourcing coming primarily from the Chesapeake Bay, and it’s slated to open in early February at 3120 E. Marshall St. in Church Hill, in the former Blue Wheeler Market & Deli spot.

Chef Lee Gregory opened The Roosevelt with Kendra Feather in 2011 and Southbound with Joe Sparatta in 2014. The Roosevelt was named 2012 Restaurant of the Year by Style Magazine, Best New Restaurant in the Region by Richmond Magazine and awarded an Elby as the city’s Best New Restaurant. The Roosevelt was again awarded Elbys in 2013 & 2017 for Best Cocktail Program (Thomas “T” Leggett), and in 2014 for Restaurant of the Year and Chef of the Year (Lee Gregory).

James Beard nominee and StarChef Rising Star Lee Gregory worked under chef Dale Reitzer at Acacia in Richmond, Virginia, for five years before moving to Six Burner (Richmond), Mockingbird in Staunton, and Blue Light Grill in Charlottesville.
