Food News Roundup

Posted By on Mon, Jul 23, 2018 at 1:58 PM

Summer Eatin'
Last week, the new restaurant-bowling-alley hybrid in Scott's Addition rolled out its summertime menu. See what we did there? The new seasonal offerings at River City Roll include crispy chickpeas, jerk chicken wings and the Gutterball pizza with fig jam, caramelized onions, kale, goat cheese, balsamic, black pepper and lemon zest.

Groceries on the Go
Shopping at Kroger just got a little easier. The grocery chain launched its Scan, Bag, Go technology in several mid-Atlantic locations, including our very own Willow Lawn store. The system allows you to use a wireless, handheld scanner to scan and bag products in the aisles as you shop. Once it's time to pay, you can either run your card using the mobile app or hop in the self-checkout line. According to a news release, Scan, Bag, Go will become available in other Richmond-area stores "in the future."

Will Travel for Rum
Looking for something different to serve at your next cocktail party? Consider a trip to Fredericksburg for a bottle of Virginia rum from A. Smith Bowman Distillery. It's a bit of a drive, but this limited, exclusive spirit is part of an experimental series and is not likely to hit the shelves again. Bottled at 114 proof, known as navy strength, it packs a punch and it's described as having "hints of molasses and slight caramel notes with a hint of floral and tropical fruit in the background." As the experimental series progresses it also will include vodka, brandy and gin.
