RICHMOND, Va. (August 26, 2021) – Fall Line Kitchen & Bar, a new food destination in downtown Richmond, will open its doors for dinner service on September 23. Located at 500 E. Broad Street, within the newly renovated Richmond Marriott Downtown, Fall Line will offer an upscale-casual eatery with ingredient-focused comfort food alongside regional craft beer and cocktails.
At the helm of Fall Line’s kitchen and modern menu is Head Chef Peyton Powell. Powell brings deep experience to Fall Line as a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu Paris, and with roles alongside some of America’s top chefs, including Chef Daniel Boulud and Chef Mario Batali in New York City.
Fall Line’s menu features everything from lump crab hushpuppies and iron skillet cornbread, to wagyu steak frites, truffled bucatini and a belly-on pork chop.
“From cocktails on the outdoor patio to dinner in our contemporary dining room, locals and visitors alike are going to ‘fall’ in love with the space and the menu,” said Powell. “The space buzzes with activity and the menu is full of complex flavors.”
Fall Line’s name is a nod to the geological feature that shaped Virginia’s landscape and the location of Richmond. At the Fall Line, the James River flows over a series of rapids, or “falls,” and crosses from the hard bedrock of the Piedmont to the softer sand and clay of the Coastal Plain. The restaurant’s design evokes a distinct sense of place and highlights the variety of landscapes created by this geological feature.
Designed by //3877, the restaurant draws inspiration from the natural and geological world, including a can’t-miss hand-painted mural of a Kingfisher bird created by local artist Hamilton Glass.
Fall Line offers an indoor dining area that seats 124, an outdoor patio that seats 34 and indoor bar seating for 59. Also available is a private dining room for up to 30. Initially open for dinner seven days a week starting at 5:00 p.m., Fall Line plans to soon offer a lunch, breakfast and brunch menu.
Fall Line is looking to fill its final positions before opening and a number of opportunities are still available, including cooks, servers, bartenders, hosts, dishwashers and support staff.
