Announcing Henrico Restaurant Week

Henrico County is home to more than 500 restaurants, and it always seems as if a few new ones are opening each month. Included among their numbers are eateries for just about any taste – from Indian to French, Mexican to Greek, Japanese to Mediterranean – oh, and American too, along with plenty of options in between.

We have wine bars, brewpubs, neighborhood barbecue joints and elegant seafood restaurants. So isn’t it about time we celebrated the unique spots that make Henrico a feast for our tastebuds?

We thought so.

That’s why we’ve created the first-ever Henrico Restaurant Week, which will take place this spring (April 11-19, to be exact). Technically it’s more than a week, because we think you’ll need five weekdays and two full weekends to sufficiently stuff yourself and appreciate the offerings that abound right here in Henrico.

So, how will Henrico Restaurant Week work, you ask? It’s simple.

During the entirety of the event, participating restaurants will agree to offer fixed-price meals for a three-course dinner and/or a two-course lunch. Many restaurants will be creating special meals and combinations to showcase their unique flavors all week. You’ll have the chance to enjoy filling meals for a price that won’t surprise you. It will provide a great chance to try out some new spots or a new reason to return to an old favorite.

The restaurants will benefit by filling seats that may otherwise have been empty during a slower time of the year.

And your appetites will help assist the important work of a longtime Henrico organization.

One dollar from the sale of each Restaurant Week lunch and $2 from the sale of each Restaurant Week dinner will be donated to the Virginia Home for Boys and Girls, which is the second-oldest boys’ home in continuous service in the United States. (VHBG now, obviously, also serves girls.)

VHBG was founded in 1846 as the Richmond Male Orphan Society and moved to its current 40-acre campus on West Broad Street in Henrico in 1957. Today, it serves as a multi-service child and family services organization that offers residential care, a school for children with specialized academic or behavioral needs and a teaching-family model of care that is the only one of its type in the state.

Restaurant weeks are common throughout the country, and we’re excited about ours here in Henrico. We hope you will be too.
