Chez Foushee

Located in historic Monroe Ward, just blocks from the venerable Jefferson Hotel, we are situated close to downtown, the Broad Street Arts District and Theater District.

Chez Foushee opened in the Fall of 1989 as a small deli and catering operation offering carry-out and boxed lunches. As business continued to flourish a number of renovations occurred and the entire building was purchased in the Fall of 1995.

Chez Foushee offers lunch and carry-out Tuesday through Friday, dinner Tuesday through Saturday, as well as Sunday brunch. Our menus change seasonally with an emphasis on fresh, local and sustainable ingredients.

On site catering is available Sunday and Monday evenings for private dinners and cocktail parties. Group dinners or Restaurant Buy-outs can be arranged for Tuesday through Saturday evenings for special occasions. Convenient, low-rate parking is available and we are just 10 minutes from the Altria Theater. or (804) 648-3225 for information, reservations and parking location. 


Strawberry Street Cafe

Here at Strawberry Street Café, we have been providing great food and service in an inviting, casual atmosphere since 1976. Located in the Historic Fan District, we are only about a ten minute drive from the Altria Theater. What we are best known for is our famous salad bar, which is actually situated in an old-fashioned bathtub and filled with fresh vegetables, fruits, prepared salads and homemade soups. The menu includes such specialties as Maryland Crabcakes, Pasta Jambalaya, Homemade Chicken Pot Pie, and Spinach Lasagna.

Our reasonably priced wine list enables guests to complement their meal with a bottle of wine for the table or any wine by the glass. Intricate stained glass, rich woodwork, fresh flowers and candles make this a cozy and intimate gathering place. Our full menu, including sandwiches and entrees, is served daily beginning at 11:30 a.m. On Saturdays and Sundays, Brunch starts at 10:00 a.m. and features breakfast classics both on the menu and on our famous salad bar. We look forward to seeing you soon.
