Glen Allen’s party-starter


The dance party (mostly for Baby Boomers) was on during a recent Saturday night at JJ’s Grille on Staples Mill Road in Glen Allen. An hour before the start of the live music at 8 p.m., it was difficult to get in and sit down at a table to have a bite before the party.

When the five members of the featured band “The English Channel” arrived they were greeted like friends and people started to drift towards the small area near the window front of the grill that later served as a dance floor. And when the band started the first of its 1960s and ‘70s pop tunes, the dance floor was filled in an eye blink. It stayed like this for the whole set – two hours of Beatles, Rolling Stones and other sing-along and dance-along tunes pleasantly presented with skill and perfect volume for the now-small space.

Potbelly opening in March


A Chicago-based sub chain has bellied up to the Richmond market to open its first shop in Henrico County.

Potbelly Sandwich Works is slated to open in the Colonnades West shopping center on West Broad Street in Glen Allen in mid-March. The shop serves up subs, sandwiches, salads, soup and milkshakes and since opening in 1977, has expanded to close to 300 shops across the U.S.

David Duke, primary owner of the local Potbelly has been hungry for a piece of the Henrico restaurant scene for some time now.

Burgers, by the ‘Bach’

I’ve never cared for burgers, and I’ve certainly never sought out a restaurant specialized in the sandwich. That’s until I ventured into Burger Bach (pronounced batch) in Carytown. The New Zealand-inspired gastropub made a believer out of a burger-skeptic like me with its gourmet burgers, handcut fries and homemade dipping sauces.

It’s not surprising that others loved it, too, and its second location opened in West Broad Village in November. Eager to compare the two, I headed over for lunch on a Saturday with a friend and an empty stomach.

A taste trip through Latin America


If you're looking for something a little different from the standard, ho-hum restaurant experience, look no further than The Village shopping center. Among the recent success stories to put down roots in The Village is Estilo, created by the owners of the gastropub Toast (featured in a Feb. 21 review in the Citizen), only a few steps away.

Estilo – which translates to style – offers a taste of Peru, Chile and Bolivia, among other countries, and a menu that rotates regularly through the rest of Central and South America.
