Esquire's article on the Best Restaurants which can be read here, lists Rappahannock in Richmond and gives an honorable mention to The Shack. I love Rappahannock and try to get there every time I'm in the Holy City. And of course, Ian Boden's The Shack is a kitschy food centric haven (but then it has to be because you sure don't go for the ambiance .... and that's the point). Esquire then goes one step further and names Virginia as THE food area for 2014. Lots of good things going on for foodies in the area!
