This week, we are starting the first installment in a series of restaurant spotlights from all the places ASL calls home. It seemed fitting that we start with the ASL’s home town, Richmond, Virginia.

Millie’s Diner opened in May of 1989 in Richmond’s historic Church Hill neighborhood. While the outside of this Richmond landmark restaurant can be underwhelming, the food is guaranteed to excite you. Millie’s changes their dinner menu every three weeks to keep their diners coming back for more. Don’t let the name fool you, Millie’s Diner is anything but your typical diner food fare. With appetizers like Roasted Bone Marrow with tomato-bacon jam and roasted cauliflower, to entrees like Pan Seared Black Bass and Arroz con Puerco, Millie’ is way more than just a hamburger joint. Don’t worry — if you want a hamburger, their lunch menu has you covered. If brunch is more your thing, you are sure to find one of your favorites on their brunch menu which has earned them Best Brunch in Richmond twice.

Whether you are a Richmond resident or just in town to visit make sure you add Millie’s Diner to your list of places to eat!
