It’s been an eventful week for Longoven, which continues to rake in national accolades. Six days after the Scott’s Addition restaurant was declared one of “two new enchanting reasons to drive and dine” by renowned restaurant critic Tom Sietsema, Longoven appeared on Bon Appetit magazine’s list of nominees for America’s Best New Restaurants 2019.

It’s the only Virginia restaurant on the list, and other cities represented include New York, San Francisco, Nashville, Philadelphia and Raleigh. Each nominee gets a photo with a short description, and Longoven’s write-up reads “Tweezer food you’ll actually enjoy!” It’s the only description with an exclamation mark, so, extra points for enthusiasm, right?

On Sept. 17, the 50 nominees will be narrowed down to the final Hot 10 list, and a celebration in New York will take place Oct. 19.

Andrew Manning, Patrick Phelan and Megan Phelan quickly established a following by holding successful pop-ups for three years, and the brick and mortar restaurant opened last summer.
