Local grocery store Ellwood Thompson’s is beginning delivery service of their café sandwiches, wraps, and sides available in-store via bike. The market is partnering with bicycle delivery service Quickness RVA to deliver 13 sandwiches and wraps, sides, and drinks.

The service includes the store’s made-to-order menu only. Grocery delivery, which is currently being tested across the street at the Carytown Kroger store, is not part of today’s announcement. No word on whether it may be offered in the future.

“This is a natural partnership, given our core focus on sustainable transportation, said Jess Izen, General Manager of Quickness RVA. “What else could Ellwood Thompson’s be delivered with, but bikes? We also respect Ellwood Thompson’s support for local farmers, as a business that prides ourself on building local community.”

We are excited to be partnering with Quickness to offer our healthy, locally made and sourced when available sandwiches, wraps, bowls and salads to the Richmond community, said Colin Beirne, Ellwood Thompson’s Marketing Director. “Not only are we pumped to be able to offer up delivery, but we are equally as pumped to partner with Quickness. It’s awesome to be able to work with a similar mission-minded, environmentally friendly, bike loving, local company.”

Great news from our friends at Laura Lee’s (3410 Semmes Avenue).

Laura Lee’s is now open for dine-in and take-out daily from 5-10 PM:

We offer a mix of outdoor seating and tables adjacent to our open garage door at the front of the dining room. Our online reservations system does not differentiate between the two – we will do our best to offer your preferred table at arrival, but there are no guarantees. If you would like to specifically reserve either an indoor table or an outdoor table, please call us at (804)233-9672.

Please note that all guests are required to wear a mask or face covering.

Richmond BizSense.com has the news of another restaurant feeling the sting of Covid-19.

“We have decided to permanently close. With COVID, and giving birth to our second child in May, we just don’t feel comfortable with the daily risk, nor do we feel it responsible to put our staff at risk,” the Comstocks said in a message to BizSense via Facebook.

The Comstocks said they’re not sure what their next move might be. Both are chefs who had prior experience in the culinary scenes in Las Vegas and Richmond before opening The Naked Onion.
