It wouldn't be a party in Richmond without excellent caterers, preferably Tuffy and Leslie Stone of A Sharper Palate. In 15 years they've plated dinners for thousands, weddings for hundreds, and many of the city's tastiest bashes. Even the ham biscuit has felt their impact: Theirs is a basil-tomato roll dressed in honey-chipotle butter. And while upscale fare keeps them running, it's Tuffy's world-championship barbecue that's captured hearts. Watch for a big new venture from this team next year.
