FeedMore honors Henrico volunteers


FeedMore recognized several volunteers from Henrico County recently in honor of National Volunteer Appreciation Week. The volunteers - William Cary, Phil Newton and Yvette Gilmore – have given eight total years of service to the agency, which works to fight hunger in Central Virginia.

‘Asian Cajun’ restaurant entry arriving

Come September, Henrico County residents will be rolling up their sleeves and strapping on their bibs for a taste of New Orleans along with some flavors hailing from the Far East.

Going Greek, going casual

Cafe’s traditional fare both delights and disappoints
When I read an online reviewer's comment that the Greek Grill Cafe was "second only to Stella's" in the quality of its Greek food, I knew – as a loyal long-time fan and regular at Stella's – that I had to check it out.

After two visits to the Cafe, I can attest that it bears at least one resemblance to Stella's: the exterior appearance is small and plain, made more pleasing by the large windows. Tucked almost under the freeway, the Cafe is located on a shabby stretch of Westwood Avenue; but the inside appearance is cozy, with home-like touches such as lush plants to soften the dreary view and large murals depicting scenes from Greece. > Read more.
