About Spoonbread Bistro

Spoonbread Bistro blends Southern cuisine with European accents in a modern, casual atmosphere.  Boasting unique dishes such as the Pork Sriracha and Collard Green Egg Rolls and the Grilled Strip Steak on Himalyan salt block, Spoonbread Bistro has become a Richmond destination. Spoonbread Bistro expanded its reach in the Richmond area and opened a second location in Short Pump on Lauderdale Drive; Spoonbread Deux.

The concept of Spoonbread was developed by Chef Micheal Hall from his love of Southern cuisine.  Chef Hall has fond memories of his grandmother, mother, and aunts cooking spoonbread.  For this reason, Spoonbread to Chef Hall means comfort, love, and family.  His vision for the restaurant marries elevated cuisine with his southern comfort food background.  Spoonbread Bistro and Spoonbread Bistro Deux create a relaxed environment where all guest are welcomed like family.

Interested in experiencing additional chef-inspired dishes, Spoonbread offers a chef’s tasting for $85.00 per person with wine pairings.  Through the chef’s tasting, guest have the opportunity to experience dishes that are currently inspiring the chefs.  The chefs tasting uses many locally sourced and fresh seasonal ingredients.  Advance notice and reservations are required.

Spoonbread Deux has two private dining rooms perfect for hosting events.  The rooms can be reserved separately or together for a larger party.  Reservations for holiday parties are currently available by emailing

One of the many highlights of Spoonbread Deux is the beautiful well-appointed bar. There is Happy Hour Wednesday-Friday from 4:00-6:00 offering a selection of beer, wine, and cocktails.
