RICHMOND, Va. — Two well-known restaurateurs and a food vendor have made their Southside debut.
Southbound opened on Nov. 25 at 3036 Stony Point Drive in the Stony Point Shopping Center. The venture is owned by Joe Sparatta of Heritage restaurant in the Fan, Lee Gregory of Church Hill’s The Roosevelt and Matthew Gottwald of Beechwood Farms, a livestock farm Goochland.
The trio has a 10-year lease on the 3,600-square-foot space that’s neighbor to a Martin’s and a Gelati Celesti. Southbound’s menu includes house-made pasta, pork, fish, chicken and sandwiches.
“Everything is under $30,” Sparatta said. “We’re trying to keep it affordable and still use high-quality ingredients.”
Southbound gets its ingredients from Victory Farms in Richmond, Sam Rust Seafood in Hampton, Cavalier Produce in Charlottesville and Ashley Farms in North Carolina.
