Parterre, a new restaurant, is opening in Linden Row Inn, the historic hotel at 100 E. Franklin St. in downtown Richmond.
The full-service restaurant is a partnership between the Inn and Trolley House Refreshments Inc., a Richmond-based vendor for office vending machines and mini-markets. It's expected to open this summer.
Parterre will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and will offer "regional southern comfort food with items such as smoked wings, pickled deviled eggs, and po’boys," according to a news release.
The restaurant will have a full bar and also offer grab and go items, including beer and wine.
“The Trolley House team’s extensive culinary experience, coupled with their demonstrated commitment to stellar service, will undoubtedly provide our guests with an outstanding selection of locally sourced and freshly prepared dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, while offering our meeting and events clients with an unrivaled menu of catering options," Vishal Savani, managing partner of Linden Row Inn, wrote in a statement.
Groovin’ Gourmets, a subsidiary of Trolley House Refreshments, will offer catering services at the hotel as well.
The name, Parterre, is an homage to Edgar Allan Poe.
“Drawing inspiration from the hotel’s historical relationship with Edgar Allan Poe, Parterre was named after one of Poe’s romantic odes, ‘To Helen.’ The poem features mention of the ‘enchanted parterre,' or ornamental garden, located on the Linden Row grounds. We could not be more excited about the opportunity to give both the guests of Linden Row Inn and Richmond residents a new location that everyone can enjoy,” Chase Seymour, director of culinary services for Parterre, wrote in a statement.
