The Jefferson in Richmond, Virginia


The Jefferson

Rotunda lobby

Sunday Champagne brunch at The Jefferson is a local tradition that draws loyal diners from miles around. This lavish meal is served in the majestic, old-fashioned setting of the restored rotunda lobby, and music by the Skip Gailes Trio enhances the genteel mood. Because the chef uses seasonal, regional ingredients, the menu changes regularly, with standards that include made-to-order omelets, house-made charcuterie and oysters on the half shell. Signature dishes like spoonbread are a favorite, and if you still have room after tri-tip and oysters, treat yourself to stuffed crêpes or cherries jubilee from the sundae station.
