Comfort is a meat and three style Southern restaurant in Richmond, Va. They focus on local farmers and from-scratch cooking with a real affinity for American whiskey, beers and wine. Go see them in Jackson Ward for some real Southern hospitality!
The old storefront with pressed-tin ceiling is home to Richmond’s best comfort food, which one local wag described as “soul food for white folks.” Very good versions of meatloaf, fried catfish, and pulled pork barbecue appear, all in substantial portions. Try the smoky pork tenderloin in a bourbon-and-molasses sauce served with braised collard greens and cheese grits.
Jason Alley is the owner of Comfort and Pasture. Pasture recently opened a Charlottesville restaurant in Stonefield.
