If you are following Richmond food news, you may have read here or here that deLux Diner and Lounge is closed. The Richmond Restaurant Group issued a statement saying that they will be opening another restaurant in the same space in the fall, and according to Richmond.com they are working to open a raw bar.
I immediately thought of the Sex & the City episode where Samantha beats out all the other ladies in the place that only serves raw food and takes home the smoking hot server that we all come to know and love, Smith Jared.
My guess is that the raw bar going in the deLux space is not going to be quite like the one in that episode, but wouldn't that be a hoot?
That got me thinking, how do I feel about a restaurant that is conceptualized around the idea of a raw bar? To be honest, I am not overly excited about it. It doesn't help that a review over at www.foodrva.com just totally slammed Water Grill for serving bummer oysters.
What are your thoughts? Do you like it raw?
