Eurasia Cafe & Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: It’s not identical to its Virginia Beach progenitor, it’s nearly double the size and more than half its menu is different, but Richmond’s Eurasia Café & Wine Bar sprouts the same fresh sensibility and warm congeniality. Among the dishes transplanted from the Beach are fried oysters with Old Bay beurre blanc and crispy vegetable spring rolls. And like at the Beach, the conscientiously priced menu is offered at lunch and dinner, so you can order well-composed salads and sandwiches, such as baby arugula and strawberry salad or a B.L.A.T. (cherry wood-smoked bacon, mixed greens, tomato, avocado and roasted poblano aïoli on toasted sourdough) day or night. But most of the entrées are unique to this locale, be it grain mustard-glazed short ribs or pan-seared diver scallops with country ham and mascarpone risotto. A respect for local products, wine and sustainability prevails, and dishes don’t force the inherited occidental-Asian moniker. That’s why you can get flank steak frites or the jumbo lump Creole crab cakes (with red beans and rice and country ham), while your date can order pork tenderloin pad thai which, indeed, embodies the East meets West implied in the name.
