Dish Up! - My Week 4 in Review

This is Dish Up! - My Week in Review.  This week I went to some great new places around town: had a stellar brunch at Viceroy, drank a few expertly crafted cocktails at the Rogue Gentleman, and bought local goods from Harvest Grocery and Supply.  

The menu at Viceroy looked so good that Tommy and I decided to order an appetizer before our brunch - crispy pork belly with pea shoots, pine nuts, and blackberries.  AMAZING! It was one of the best brunches we've had in a long time.

This new restaurant offers two liqueur options on tap. One was the Fernet Branca, an Italian aperitif, which our bartender described as the 'essence of Jagermeister distilled to a concentrate'.  It is an acquired taste, but one I could see myself getting accustom to.

Temperatures in Richmond were stupid low, but it did make for some pretty ice.
