Little has changed at Zeus Gallery Cafe
Zeus Gallery Cafe, the Belmont Avenue hideaway with black-and-white tiled tabletops and rotating artwork, opened the year the band Nirvana hit — a bellwether predating many of the quaint indie businesses leading to the Museum District.

Best New Restaurants
Restaurants in Richmond are like popcorn: Suddenly they appear, bright and white and full of promise, until out of nowhere, a crow snatches them up, and that new place on the corner is dark, with a for-sale sign in the window.
