Chef Phillip Thomason, who studied at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, is the owner and chef of this chic eatery that overlooks the Elizabeth River in Norfolk. Chef Thomason is well-known for using Virginia-grown produce and ingredients in his dishes and Virginia textiles and designs in the restaurant's décor. The restaurant's modern, yet elegant atmosphere derives from the decorations of black leather couches, chrome fixtures, and an elegant, copper-topped bar. Modern amenities lend to a more enjoyable dining experience, with the opportunity to choose a favorite movie for the provided DVD player, select preferred music through a convenient iPod link, or change the color of the walls with unique lighting techniques. This charming restaurant is located on the bottom floor of Dominion Tower on Waterside Drive. Call for reservations.
