Our annual-ish birthday dinner at The Grand, Richmond. 
The menu has changed slightly but the great service and deco remain the same.

This is our third time here, and we're seated in the perfect spot, the corner under the window, covered by winter drapes (pretty sure they never open the windows here). The combo of cozy warm colors and that wallpaper gives it a feel that no other restaurant has.
