JAN. 14, 11:31 A.M. – When he closed his Urban Tavern restaurant in Henrico's Far West End unexpectedly in November after 14 months in business, owner Garland Taylor promised that he would return with a new concept in the same space this year.

He's about to do just that.

Following a three-month renovation of the space, Taylor plans to open Union Table and Tap in the Gleneagles Shopping Center, at 10498 Ridgefield Parkway, Feb. 4.

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.
