‘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.

Crustacean Boil N’ Grill is slated to open at the end of next month in the Golds Gym Plaza shopping center on West Broad Street next to Comedy Sportz Improv Theatre.

The restaurant will serve boiled crawfish, Alaskan crab, shrimp, lobster and every other wonder of the sea, but owner Calvin Pan said this won’t be your regular seafood joint. > Read more.

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.

Don’t rush to see Turbo

Turbo is not a subtle film. Like so many others (Rudy, Rocky – even this summer’s Monsters University), it espouses that with hard work and true passion, anyone can achieve his or her wildest dreams.

But those films dealt out their messages with a deftly human touch. Their heroes did reach greatness, but only for a fleeting moment. Rocky didn’t end his film as the world heavyweight champ, and neither did Rudy end up the quarterback for the Fighting Irish. > Read more.
