Cuisine and Cocktails

We’re a city that’s rich in owner-operated restaurants, breweries, and food trucks whose owners have made their bones the Norfolk, VA way — 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.
