Hot Diggity Donuts among new restaurants opening in Richmond

RICHMOND, Va. — It’s always busy in the Richmond restaurant world and this week is no exception.

Over in the Manchester/Blackwell area, Hot Diggity Donuts will open its doors on Thursday, June 28, as the inaugural restaurant for Michael and Laura Hild’s soon-to-be empire that will include a bespoke market, two breweries and a brewpub.

The donut lounge will sell sourdough donuts, both savory and sweet, made-to-order. Flavors will include vanilla glaze and rhubarb agave. The spot will also serve cocktails. Full menu here:

Menu items include vegan steak and chicken as well as comfort dishes like lasagna and barbecue. The spot is foregoing a liquor license and producing its own fresh-squeezed juice and smoothies.
