Howdy Neighbors! RichmondBizSense wrote on this one, so all credits to them! Click here to read their article. It’s much more in-depth. Chef Henry Preston, a Portland, Oregon chef will be opening up a restaurant, Smith & Foundry, in Shockoe Bottom. The hook looks like it’ll be a three-in-one, with a casual dining first floor, fine dining in the second, and a third room the wine cellar and chef’s table.
Smith & Foundry is preparing to open at 1719 E. Franklin St. in Shockoe Bottom. Preston said he’s planning to open each part of the restaurant in phases, with an opening date for the downstairs targeted between St. Patrick’s Day and April 1, followed by the upstairs a few months after that. The private room would open about six months later.
That’s all for this one, folks! I’m excited to try them out once they’re open!
