We hopped on The Roosevelt bandwagon late since they were so busy for the first half of the year, we could not snag a table. We have since enjoyed our culinary excursions to Church Hill. The Roosevelt inspired us to seek out new Virginia wines (still impressed that they present an all-Virginia wine list). We have also appreciated their cocktails (the Orange Door Hinge is a favorite) and, of course, the food (smoked duck was a big hit with me).
For this dinner, we both stepped out of our comfort zone to celebrate.
