White Anchovie out, Iron Fish in

Posted By on Wed, Aug 3, 2011 at 2:50 PM

In one of the fastest switch-ups in Richmond restaurant history, a new identity, menu and kitchen staff are turning the not quite three-month old White Anchovie into the Iron Fish, at 3061 Lauderdale Drive.

Chef-partner Todd Manley debuts a new menu at the Henrico restaurant tonight, with dishes such as curried blue crab mac and cheese, chicken and dumplings, pan-seared barramundi and other small and entrée-sized plates ranging from $6 – 25. The new restaurant’s motto is “fresh fish and local farms by Pescados” and emphasizes colorful, accessible food that is a response to customer requests, Manley says. “I feel pretty confident” about the retooling, he adds, acknowledging that recent lukewarm reviews of the White Anchovie were a factor, but not the deciding point, in the changes. Chef Matthew Tlusty, a former partner in the venture, is developing another project.

Iron Fish will serve dinner Tuesday through Saturday as it makes the transition from one concept to another.
