Dining in Richmond

If you are planning to attend the NGS 2014 Family History Conference in Richmond, Virginia, we recommend that you
download the official tourism Visitor’s Guide, which can be found at http://www.visitrichmondva.com/plan-your-trip/visitor-guide.
Richmond offers every kind of dining option you will want. Some excellent choices are in the surrounding
neighborhoods and are worth a short cab ride. The dining section begins on page 57 of the Visitor’s Guide. Dollar
signs are used to indicate the average cost of entrées: $ = $10 or less; $$ = $10–$15; $$$ = $16–$20; and $$$$ =
more than $20. The closest restaurants are those identified as Downtown, which are listed and described here.

If you attended the NGS 2007 Family History Conference in Richmond, you will be pleased to hear that two new
restaurants have been opened on Broad Street, between the Marriott and Library of Virginia, and are walking distance from the Marriott and Hilton Garden Inn:

  • Gibson’s Grill, 700 East Broad Street, is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, serving sandwiches, salads,
    and entrées in a rock ’n’ roll themed setting. $$$
  • Richmond on Broad Café, 626 East Broad Street, is on the University of Richmond downtown campus and offers
    take-out only service for breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks, and is open from 7:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.

Other nearby dining areas include the neighborhoods of Shockoe Slip, Shockoe Bottom, Church Hill, The Fan, Carytown,
and the Museum District, all of which require a cab ride. Shockoe Slip is walking distance from the Omni and Crowne
Plaza Hotels. Both the Marriott and the Hilton Garden Inn have on-site restaurants.
