Tensions flare at Charlottesville City Council meeting

The 40 locations, menus of spring Richmond Restaurant Week

RICHMOND, Va. — Twice a year Richmond Restaurant Week (RRW) offers diners the opportunity to experience local independent restaurants and get prix fixe meals while money is raised to help eliminate hunger.

The event runs April 24 to 30 and each meal is priced at $29.17 (which does not include drinks); exactly $4.17 goes to charity.

To date, the event has raised over $591,679.59, according to its founder Aline Reitzer, who operates Acacia mid-town restaurant.  She modeled the event after similar ones in New York and other cities and added the charitable component.

Reitzer said they began in 2001 with nine restaurants and raised around $5,000 during the one-week event.

"The event has grown each year receiving interest from more restaurants and to a bi-annual event," Reitzer said. "The annual donation has grown to nearly $140,000."

"La Grotta, Millie’s, Bacchus, Helen’s and Acacia were among the participants in 2001 and have continued to support the event year after year," Reitzer added.

"The continued growth of Restaurant Week year after year has been both heartwarming and amazing," Reitzer said. "The collective Richmond Region has supported this growth, from the increase in restaurants participating, to the increased number of citizens dining during restaurant week -- fostering increased benefit to the Feed More mission, a collective “lift” to the giving spirit of the Greater Richmond Region."

It is recommended that you make reservations for Restaurant Week as early as possible because let’s face it, Richmonders love eating and deals. However, please keep in mind not all restaurants accept reservations.
