Every month at The Grand Richmond, yum cha hits the menu — though not as you know it. Sorry dumplings, spring rolls and pork buns, but this isn't your time to shine. Instead, this feast of bite-sized portions is going Italian.
Yes, Italian Yum Cha is exactly what it sounds like. Work your way through little steamer baskets filled with everything from fried zucchini flowers to suckling pig croquettes. The list goes on — caprese salad, bruschetta, pork lasagne, gnocchi and rabbit ragu — and also includes desserts such as tiramisu, lemon tart and Italian doughnuts. You can eat it all with chopsticks if you'd prefer (or at least attempt to).
As is the custom, prices are tallied per dish, which come in multiple servings. Booking a table in advance is highly recommended.
