Fan favorite shines in new West End home


It's been years since I visited the original Kuba Kuba in The Fan; although I liked the food, I was underwhelmed by the dim, cramped space.

Yes, I know neighborhood location and crowds are part of the charm for Fan dwellers, who see the place as cozy rather than claustrophobic. But I was still psyched to hear that a much larger Kuba Kuba Dos had opened in the Tuckahoe Shopping Center. And after two visits, I am pleased to report that the food at Dos is every bit as good as the original's, if not better – and the atmosphere is much more pleasant. I can now savor the goodness without the grittiness, not to mention other patrons bumping up against my elbows as I eat.

A taste of Japan


In a spot that could be easily overlooked is a surprising, and delicious, Japanese restaurant. In a tiny nook in the shops at the corner of Ridgefield Parkway and Pump Road sits a welcoming, warm and comfortable Asian restaurant called Ichiban, which means “the best.”

The restaurant, tucked between a couple others in the Gleneagles Shopping Center, was so quiet and dark that it was difficult to tell if it was open at 6:30 p.m. on a Monday. When I opened the door, I smiled when I looked inside.

Travinia brings contemporary elegance to Willow Lawn


It was another win for Willow Lawn when Travinia Italian Kitchen and Wine Bar opened there six months ago, nestled in the heart of the re-made shopping center. The contemporary American Italian restaurant boasts 13 locations up and down the East Coast, with the Henrico location opening in August.

In the same week, I hit up Travinia twice, once for lunch and once for a late dinner. At lunchtime on a weekday, I was overwhelmed by the smell of garlic and by the number of working professionals in nice suits on their lunch breaks. When we first walked in, I was concerned our meal would be a little too pricey based on the décor – it’s a really nice place. Luckily, the menu has a variety of options for every budget.
