Dwight Jones blessed a pimento-cheese fritter with an approving mayoral bite during the grand opening of East End bistro and lounge 2113 on July 9.
The leader of the First Baptist Church of South Richmond had given the place a thumbs up, boasting of having a drink named after him at the bar. That tells you how comfortable his congregation is with socializing, the mayor and minister joked.
As co-owner Justin Ayars explained later, the bar sometimes christens cocktails with an honorary name for a patron, though none has made it to the printed menu.
First off I think, it’s weird to call it the East End. Secondly the new menu sounds good from what I have heard (website if being re-vamped so no menu online) but I haven’t tried it. What say you peoples of the interwebs, have you been yet?
