Richmond’s newest ghost kitchen offers “Heavenly” Hispanic, Mediterranean flavors

On the menu, you’ll find creative pairings, like egg roll sized chimichangas stuffed to perfection and gyros with slow-cooked lamb done barrio style.

The Heavenly Cove is Richmond’s newest ghost kitchen, offering a fusion of Mediterranean and Hispanic flavors.

Founder Franklyn Harris

Founder Franklyn Harris knew he wanted to bring something new and exciting to the table, so he brainstormed with longtime friend and chef K’shara Jarmin, Culinary Director, to create unique and exciting fusions. Jarmin noticed that many spices found in Hispanic recipes such as clove, cilantro, and cumin can also be found in Mediterranean dishes, thus the fusion of these two flavors together.

On the menu, you’ll find creative pairings, like egg roll sized chimichangas stuffed to perfection and gyros with slow-cooked lamb done barrio style.

Harris also collaborates with local artist Malik Radford. A VCU graduate, they met in 2016 and Harris knew he had to bring Radford onto the team to collaborate. Radford is the graphic designer for all things The Heavenly Cove.

The Heavenly Cove operates out of Hatch Kitchen, Richmond’s food and beverage incubator. Available for pick-up or delivery Fridays and Saturdays on GrubHub or Richmond-based food delivery service, ChopChop.

PHOTOS: Fall Line Kitchen & Bar opens Thursday inside Richmond Marriott Downtown

Located at 500 E. Broad Street within the newly renovated Richmond Marriott Downtown, Fall Line offers an upscale-casual eatery with ingredient-focused comfort food alongside regional craft beer and cocktails.

On Thursday, September 23rd, Fall Line Kitchen & Bar, a new restaurant in downtown Richmond, will open its doors for dinner service.

Located at 500 E. Broad Street within the newly renovated Richmond Marriott Downtown, Fall Line offers an upscale-casual eatery with ingredient-focused comfort food alongside regional craft beer and cocktails.

“We’re excited to start showing guests what our talented team has put together and giving the community a taste of what Fall Line has to offer,” said Peyton Powell, Fall Line’s head chef and a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu Paris. “We’ve developed a creative menu featuring dishes including lump crab hushpuppies and truffled bucatini.”

Throughout the month of October, a portion of Fall Line proceeds will go to support RVA Community Fridges, a nonprofit organization providing free food to Richmonders via community refrigerators. The restaurant will donate $1 for every signature cocktail and $1 for every cornbread appetizer purchased.

Fall Line offers an indoor dining area that seats 124, an outdoor patio that seats 34, and indoor bar seating for 59. Also available is a private dining room for up to 30. Initially open for dinner Tuesday through Thursday from 5-10 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 5-11 p.m., Fall Line plans to soon expand hours and offer a lunch, breakfast, and brunch menu. Reservations for the restaurant can be made via OpenTable.

Fall Line is continuing to hire for a number of positions, including cooks, servers, bartenders, hosts, dishwashers and support staff.

Fall Line’s name is a nod to the geological feature that shaped Virginia’s landscape and the location of Richmond. At the Fall Line, the James River flows over a series of rapids, or “falls,” and crosses from the hard bedrock of the Piedmont to the softer sand and clay of the Coastal Plain. The restaurant’s design evokes a distinct sense of place and highlights the variety of landscapes created by this geological feature.

Designed by //3877, the restaurant draws inspiration from the natural and geological world, including a can’t-miss mural of a Kingfisher bird created by local artist Hamilton Glass.

Richmond BizSense.com Reporting Don’t Look Back South for Sale

Bummer taco fans.

Published

on

The Southside version of Don’t Look Back is up for sale. I believe this is the third restaurant to fail at this spot. Raise your hands if you remember grabbing tacos from Nate’s stand at the OG South of the James Farmers Market.

Details from Richmond BizSense.com

The current home of the local taco shop chain’s Don’t Look Back South at 7524 Forest Hill Ave. as well as an adjacent property at 7522 Forest Hill Ave. were recently listed for sale for a combined $1.5 million.

The listing comes as Don’t Look Back South is scheduled to shutter by Oct. 30, Hamooda Shami, managing partner and a co-owner, said Monday.

The Forest Hill location opened in its 1,900-square-foot space in 2018. An affiliate of the restaurant acquired the 2,600-square-foot space next door in 2020 with plans for a complementary retail space.

Shami said after a challenging year and a long time in the industry, he and co-owner Nate Gutierrez decided to pare down their workloads through the shuttering of Don’t Look Back South, as well as refocusing their responsibilities within the company.
