Mazal on the Style Weekly write up!
Today is my birthday and we just had dinner. That was freakin' delicious, y'all! Thank you so much!
Super excited for another pop-up. The Switch Pop-up had some of the best food I've ever had in Richmond. *Best food I've ever had anywhere. A few questions 1. Will you have any Gluten free entrees? 2. Is the Sunday Brunch a different menu? 3. What's the cost per person (without any drinks?) Looking forward to this!
