Strong indication that 8 1/2 is moving to Church Hill!

From a rumor to a strong indication, it looks like more delicious pizza and sandwiches are coming to Church Hill!

An avid source recently posted on reddit that 8 1/2 is moving to the old Stroops place in 2709 E Marshall St with a strong indication that the lease was signed a couple of months ago. This would be 8 1/2’s second spot in Richmond, with the first being in The Fan.

A quick look into 8 1/2 reveals a deep reverence over their white pizza and their simple yet full of flavor sandwiches. CHPN is reaching out to them for final confirmation, but the signs are looking good!

Well, this would save our family a lot of rides to The Fan. I for one am thrilled at the prospect. The only thing that would make this news better is if they were moving into the old Dog & Pig Show space — closer to our home.

A diner. A good diner that was open 24/7 with low cost normal food.

@8 Right? I’ve been saying that for almost 4 years. I don’t know about 24/7, but definitely as long as the buses run. The lot(s) at 21st and Marshall would be PRIME for all the MCV walkers and bus traffic. Diner and or breakfast sandwich grab and go and maybe some acai bowls, bone broth, and smoothies. A balance of healthy and unhealthy/traditional. But what I know. #agirlcandream

@9 / @8 – I don’t think acai bowls, bone broth, or smoothies are what most people (and definitely BAF/post #8) have in mind. I think s/he is thinking fast cheap and easy/greasy – but I could be wrong…
