Bobby Kruger Is Leaving Belle & James

Now he gets to sip cocktails instead of making them.

Bobby Kruger, one of the first folks to bring craft cocktails to Richmond, is leaving Belle & James as general manager at the end of his shift on Saturday, July 9.

He’s been with the restaurant since its inception and helped create its bar program and, along with owner Kunal Shah, its brand. Belle & James opened at 700 E. Main St. last fall.

“I am very much looking forward to relaxing and sipping on a delicious cocktail at this beautiful bar without having to jump up and address something work-related,” Kruger said in the announcement, posted on his Facebook page.

Kruger says he plans to announce his next move at the end of the month.

Editor's note: We have corrected the spelling of Washington restaurateur Kunal Shah's last name.
