Edgy restaurants are finally arriving to meet the needs of the Richmond’s increasingly young and moneyed population, and Violet’s is the first among equals, serving an enticing menu of cocktails, raw-bar favorites and hearty entrées. Done up in hues of blue and green and outfitted with a wraparound walnut bar, it has the same intimate and lively vibe as nearby sib—Fiorella—ideal for date night. Don't miss the fresh, tender and chilled lobster, accompanied by Meyer lemon-mayonnaise, or the highly Instagrammable sipper Violet Skies, infused with strawberry brandy, mezcal and crème de violette. A grilled half-chicken with bread salad tailed by a tangy key lime tart is pure comfort, while the late-night $20 burger and cocktail combo is worth staying up for.
