Weekly Food Notes: Toast, Ice Cream + More

Posted By on Wed, Sep 13, 2017 at 1:24 PM

https://www.styleweekly.com/ShortOrderBlog/archives/2017/09/12/bike-restaurant-week-launches They're bringing the deliciousness across the river: Toast owners Josh and Jessica Bufford unlocked the doors at the second location of Toast in Powhatan County’s Winterfield Place shopping center.

According to Richmond BizSense, Gelati Celesti is opening a much bigger production plant —four times larger — to keep up with the ice-cream demand. It also is considering Virginia Beach. Next up: the world.

Pumpkin spice beer is highly divisive, and this Virginia brewery wants you to bring in a bottle so they can pour it down the drain.

Although it’s no longer breaking news, it is happy news. The old Village Cafe spot will be renovated to accommodate Charlottesville-based Roots Natural Kitchen, described as, inevitably, fast-casual and serving natural food. You can get your grain bowl on in February.

We were promised a restaurant and it looks like we’re going to get it — next year. Stone Brewing is about to start renovating Intermediate Terminal site nearby for the four-floor spot, Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens, to open later next year. And that’s still about a year ahead of schedule for the brewery.

Shore Dog Cafe has a new chef, Tommy Levitt, formerly of Richmond Restaurant Group. Along with consulting chef Michael Grayson, the menu is undergoing an expansion to include new dishes and seafood options.

Chef and owner of Butler’s Unique Catering, Todd Butler, has opened a brand spanking new Olio at 2028 W. Cary St., reports the Times-Dispatch. Butler bought the naming rights from original owner Jason Savedoff last year.

Bike Walk RVA is about to launch its first restaurant week. It will be held Sept. 17-21 and will feature plenty of restaurants, deals and discounts and even bike tours to get you to your destination.
