Beijing On Grove opens Saturday

Beijing On Grove, the latest venture from EAT Restaurant Partners, held its soft opening last night. The former home of The Blue Goat (under the same owners) will officially open to the public on Saturday at Libbie and Grove. The menu, which was released in full on the restaurant’s Facebook page this week, looks like a page from the playbook of sister restaurants Fat Dragon Chinese Kitchen & Bar and Wong Gonzalez, but with plenty of variations.

Check out the full menu here.

Gelati Celesti announces opening date for Scott’s Addition location

Gelati Celesti is finally opening soon on the Boulevard after being delayed for months. Originally scheduled to open last summer, the local gourmet gelato business with multiple area stores will open its fourth location in Scott’s Addition next month. The latest store, which will be located across from the Bow Tie Movieland multiplex at 1400 N. Boulevard, is the former home of ARC Document Solutions. Door are scheduled to open February 9th.

The Dog and Pig Show to close in February

The show’s over for an award-winning restaurant in Church Hill, as Richmond Magazine’s Stephanie Breijo reports:

“We’ve got some big news. As we start off this new year, our focus has shifted to a new direction for The Dog & Pig Show,” the Facebook announcement read. “As of February 12th we will be closing our storefront doors.” Thursday’s news shocked fans of Church Hill’s stylish, creative and neighborly restaurant The Dog & Pig Show. Where, after Feb. 12, would Richmond find James Eckrosh’s shrimp and grits made with kimchi butter and roe? Or Isabel Eckrosh’s dalmatian cookies and milk-and-cookies bars? Fortunately, while the husband-and-wife team will close the doors next month, there’s hope on the horizon.
