Secret Sandwich Society opens on E. Grace

RICHMOND, Va. — What was once a secret is no more.

Secret Sandwich Society, a West Virginia restaurant brand, is preparing to open its first Richmond location at 501 E. Grace St. in the coming days, said co-owner David Bailey,

“We’re hoping to open by Wednesday,” said Bailey, who owns the restaurant with his wife Tashia. “That’s a tentative date, but we’re hoping we’re going to be able to open by that time.”

The 3,200-square-foot restaurant will seat about 108 patrons, Bailey said. It will employ about 40 full- and part-time staff, including cooks, wait staff and management.

Secret Sandwich Society will serve a full menu for lunch and dinner that includes a variety of burgers, sandwiches and salads. The restaurant will also serve a number of sweet and savory snacks and desserts, such as its signature key lime pie, pimento cheese fries and salted caramel chocolate tart.
