Restaurants

We’re a city that’s rich in owner-operated restaurants, breweries, and food trucks whose owners have made Norfolk, VA their home — with a lot of heart and a side of grit.

Our cuisine, like our community, isn’t singular in its signature, but more a product of the melting pot Norfolk’s always been. Whether it’s the ex-record store owner that found his way into a handsome biscuit baking kitchen exciting the palates and pages of USA Today, the Norfolk-native black chef who’s daring to do traditional southern cuisine gluten-free, or the corporate lawyer with a Smartmouth that’s ditched the courtroom for the tasting room — this city’s full of some of the best little places you’ll ever eat, and some of the most interesting people you’ll ever meet.
