In episode 2 of RVA, Restaurants, and Real Estate we head to Fatty Smokes and have lunch with Chris Staples, the EatRP Director of Marketing and Hospitality. Fatty Smokes is an amazing BBQ spot in Downtown Richmond featuring house slow cooked pork, chicken, and brisket. The certified pitmaster, Chef Mike Lindsey leads the way in putting dishes out that are elevated but have comfort in every bite.
Chris and I chat about where EatRP is going and why RVA is an amazing town to live and play in. The El Jefe sandwich was over the top, the Fried Green Tomatoes always have a special place in my heart and stomach. And maybe the best kept secret were Big Mike’ Egg Rolls.
