Virginia is for Lovers

Virginia is for Food Lovers


Taste More of Virginia

One of the best ways to experience Virginia is through our food. We are, after all, the Birthplace of American Cuisine, the Oyster Capital of the East Coast, and a top ten wine destination in the world.

Experience Virginia with the flavors of thoughtfully selected, carefully sourced local ingredients. Taste the history of Virginia, from sustainable farmed Chesapeake Bay oysters to meticulously cultivated strains of heirloom corn, in restaurants across the Commonwealth. The food served across the state by acclaimed Virginia chefs and at charming local eateries is rooted in more than just good taste: it provides the story of the land you’re standing on. This deeper food experience is why Virginia is for Food Lovers.
