New Carytown Restaurant Announces Its Opening

The Broken Tulip Society Eatery will launch a nightly prix fixe menu.


UPDATE: The new opening date for the Broken Tulip Social Eatery will be Friday, Nov. 17.

Tue, Nov 14, 2017 at 11:51 a.m.: The Broken Tulip Social Eatery will open in Carytown on Thursday, Nov. 16, in the old Amour Wine Bistro space at 3129 W. Cary St.

Co-owner David Crabtree-Logan worked in Michelin-starred the Plumed Horse and the Kitchin in Edinburgh, Scotland, and his wife and co-owner Sariann Lehrer co-authored “A Feast of Ice and Fire: the Official Game of Thrones Companion Cookbook.”

“After several years and a couple of successful (if illegal) supper club operations in Oregon and Scotland, we settled in Richmond excited by the thriving food scene, long growing season and abundance of dedicated and talented farmers and artisans in the region,” its website says.

The couple promises a farm-to-table, prix-fixe menu that will be served to diners seated at three large communal tables. “We want it to be more than a place to eat,” Crabtree-Logan said in a news release. “We want people to interact with each other, and we know that the best way for that to happen is over good food.”

The Broken Tulip will be open for dinner from Thursday to Saturday with seatings at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., and for brunch on Sunday with seatings at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. Reservations are required.
