Second Place: Lemaire

Third Place: Acacia Mid-Town

What is it about dipping food into cheese and chocolate that connotes romance to Richmond? In a ritual that wins this category year after year, fondue fanatics fantasize about the sexy secret that is the Melting Pot in the West End. Maybe it's the discreet little seating nooks, or the shared act of dipping and dripping, or the extraordinarily vast wine selection that wins them over. Romance may be complicated, but dinner for two at this little charmer is easier than pie. Romance comes in other forms to voters, too. Lemaire in the Jefferson Hotel has the fine cuisine of chef Walter Bundy — and the advantage of rooms right upstairs. Southern food rendered to seasonal perfection has a way of seducing, and Lemaire's service keeps couples fully primed and pampered. At Acacia Mid-Town, chef Dale Reitzer's seafood dishes may be an aphrodisiac, heightened by sublime cocktails and desserts. This, Richmond, is the food of love, three ways.
