Fifty high fives for Fifty Acres

With its vaulted ceiling and exposed brick, Fifty Acres in Richmond is a place that heaves with espresso sippers. I immediately like the décor – minimalist industrial; a contrast from the historic building that houses the newbie restaurant.

Between ladies that lunch and tables of businessmen taking care of business, there’s space for the rest to be stationed at the impressive marble coffee bar. In front of the strikingly bare slate wall, owner and coffee veteran Nick Gaoutsos mans the serious looking barista machine that provides serious results. The soy latte ($4.30) was spot on, as was the chai latte ($4.50) that accompanied it.

“The city is oversaturated with coffee, so I wanted to introduce something different” Nick explains in relation to the décor.

The diverse menu offers an array of rather enticing sounding dishes: pulled pork sliders ($18) and goats cheese soufflé ($12) to name a few. Try the confit duck leg salad ($19), one of the server’s recommendations, or the tomato braised lamb shoulder ($16) – one of the gluten free options. Out in a flash, each dish is nothing short of scrumptious. Both were perfectly cooked, with respective carbs and fresh veggies as accompaniments.

A great new hot spot that’s looking to please, you’ll be sure to find something that your little heart desires at Fifty Acres.
