Cooking for a vegetarian wanna-be

You know your 13-year-old child is truly growing up when he announces his plan to become a vegetarian, effective immediately.

“But you like meat,” I pointed out.

“True. But I don’t like the idea of eating animals.” He rubbed his belly sentimentally. “It doesn’t make me feel good.”

Apparently, meat of the porcine and bovine variety particularly bothers him. And poultry doesn’t sound too appetizing to him either. (Fish we can slaughter at will.)

A Rocketts Landing restaurant is closing its doors Feb. 1.

M Bistro and Wine Bar announced by e-mail last night that it would close after three years in business.

"Please know that it was a very difficult decision for us to make as our lease period comes to an end. We wholeheartedly thank all of our families, friends, wonderful staff, investors, neighbors and the Richmond community at large for a wonderful experience.

Barbecue roadtrip

Deep Run Roadhouse offers creative comfort food
