Musselduck's Restaurant and Expressions 

Tastemakers

Musselduck's Restaurant is honoring the General Assembly's legislative season with "Virginia Specials" dinners, Thursday nights through March 9.

Each night you'll find a new menu filled with distinctly Virginian flavor, live jazz and door prizes. This Thursday, Feb. 17, start your evening with Gov. Gilmore's Gumbo, Chesapeake seafood in a thick and spicy broth with okra over rice. The entree, which includes a glass of Oakencroft Virginia Chardonnay, is chargrilled Chesapeake Rockfish with braised spinach, Smithfield ham and a Creole mustard cream sauce. The dinner is completed with an apple crisp a la mode for dessert.

Musselduck's owner and chef Doug Haver also has temporarily scratched his normal Thursday night jazz lineup, replacing it with the Extra Measures jazz trio. The group is fronted by lobbyist Dick Pulley, taking time off to relax and blow a few jazz notes over your candlelit table with his saxophone. Dinners take place from 6-9 p.m. and are $19.99 per person. Musselduck's is located at 411 N. Harrison St. 358-3619.

If you want to get as far away as possible from the after-legislative-hours schmoozing, head out to Glen Allen's Cultural Arts Center and try Expressions, the center's new "casual gourmet" restaurant. Open for lunch Tuesday through Friday, and dinner Wednesday through Saturday, this eatery boasts a large and varied menu, including tapas, sandwiches and entrees.

This weekend is a good chance to check out the Cultural Arts Center. Friday night you'll find the opening of the Henrico Theatre Company's 14th annual "One-Act Showcase," three one-act plays of drama, romance and musical comedy. Make reservations for any of the free 8 p.m. shows at 501-5115. Call Expressions at 515-9400. Both are located at 2880 Mountain
