Weekly Food Notes

Perly's New Market, Insomnia Cookies + More

Posted By on Tue, Dec 23, 2014 at 11:51 AM

Grace Street shopping: Perly’s Restaurant and Delicatessen owners plan to open a market next door to the restaurant next year, as first reported by Richmond.com. The as-yet-unnamed market on East Grace Street will offer grocery staples, beer and wine, as well as specialty items and prepared food from Perly’s.

Doughnut frenzy: The long-awaited Richmond outpost of Duck Donuts opened in the Shops at Willow Lawn last week. The cake-style doughnuts by the North Carolina-based company are favorites of Outer Banks visitors, and the shop’s arrival turns the heat up on the already hot local market for doughnuts.

Hog heaven: The Cultured Swine food truck will debut as a restaurant in January on Second Street. Chef and co-owner Corey Johnson is looking to street food from around the world for inspiration — think banh mi — in addition to what the truck currently serves, such as Korean bulgogi tacos or tamales stuffed with pulled pork and potatoes.

CLOSING: Franklin Street’s Dash Kitchen & Carry closed its doors last week.

Sweet stuff: As first reported by Richmond BizSense, Insomnia Cookies plans to open for business in Richmond next month. This is the granddaddy of all cookie-delivery companies, founded in 2003, with locations from the East Coast to the Midwest. Campus Cookies and the original local favorite, Red Eye Cookies, are about to come up against cheaper cookie prices and stiff competition for the late-night, Virginia Commonwealth University crowd.
