Lakeside’s Italian secret

Arianna’s delights with oversized meals priced right
Flavors – such as these slices of fresh mozzarella, basil and tomatoes, drizzled with olives and capers – abound at Arianna’s in Lakeside.
In the Lakeside area of Henrico, you’ll find some well-known places like Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden and Bryan Park, but you may miss a delicious Italian secret – Arianna’s Grill, located at 5107 Lakeside Avenue.

Fortunately, I live nearby and take advantage of the restaurant’s lunches, dinners and home delivery; I can’t say no to their oversized salads and specialty pizzas. > Read more.

Halligan’s unique atmosphere creates fun ‘hot’ spot

Isn’t it a nice feature of Henrico County that we have “theme” restaurants like those in bigger cities right here in West Broad Village and that everything is for real? The Halligan Bar & Grill is all about fighting fires – quench your thirst and hunger, see and touch the real equipment of fire and rescue services, including a real historic fire engine truck, and mingle with real firefighters.

The Halligan is a true and honest theme restaurant named after the claw-and-blade bar used by fire and rescue services around the world. Independent restaurant owner Shawn Gregory used to be a firefighter himself and has parked a real fire engine right in the main restaurant. His father, also a firefighter, used to ride that very truck when on duty at Henrico Fire Station No. 3 years ago. > Read more.
