RICHMOND, Va. —  One of Richmond’s busiest restaurant groups has unwrapped its plans for a downtown eatery.

Chris Tsui of Eat Restaurant Partners said he and his partners plan to open Wong Gonzalez in July at 412 E. Grace St. downtown. Plans call for a “bar-focused” restaurant with a menu that combines Asian and Mexican fare.

“I thought it would fit the area pretty well,” Tsui said. “It will be a more approachable menu. The price points will be low, approachable.”

Tsui would not say what it is expected to cost to open Wong Gonzalez. He owns the 3,800-square-foot restaurant space and the two apartments above it along with Chris Johnson and Tom Dickey of the Monument Cos.

Eat Restaurant Partners also owns the recently opened Boulevard Burger & Brew, as well as Fat Dragon in Scott’s Addition, Foo Dog in the Fan, Blue Goat in the West End, Osaka Sushi & Steak near University of Richmond, and Wild Ginger in Midlothian.
