Although this is Jessica and her husband, Josh’s, first restaurant, she is no stranger to the Richmond restaurant scene. Jessica and Josh can be found most nights in Toast, visiting with guests and meeting the neighbors. This is a long-time dream for both of them, and they look forward to serving you. I’d wanted to try Toast for a while, and I just had the opportunity to do so with some friends. This is a fantastic restaurant with a wide variety of meal options depending on your mood. They also carry a large selection of beer and wine. I drank a glass of cabernet sauvignon, which was delicious. We were four people, split the Brussel sprouts and pimento cheese wontons, yum! I had a cup of she-crab soup, and it was delicious. For dinner, I had the pesto panini sandwich and added the portobello mushrooms to it.
I added the sweet potato tots as my side. It was all quite delicious. I like the vibe as well. It’s a neighborhood pub and very fun. Best sandwiches. We stopped by accidentally, and we LOVED every bite of our meals. And I must say that it is hard to please us regarding food. Especially recently, we had pesto chicken ciabatta (for pesto lovers, pretty light, tasteful, and just delicious) and Nashville chicken sandwich (much heavier but delicious, a little spicy and flavorful). So good! We recommend it! So, this is one of the best bars and restaurants Richmond has to offer you! If you are in the city, we recommend you visit this spot at least once. Go with your family, friends, or loved ones!
