Little Saint opened in October 2017 and is located inside the area once known as the Devil's Triangle- now the heart of the Museum District. The restaurant is the latest and most personal expression of the RVA Hospitality Group's owner, Frances Santarella. Serving local, fresh dishes crafted in the tradition of Alice Waters, the New Virginia cuisine ventures into uncharted territories of food + drink. Little Saint promises healthy, exciting food that you can eat daily--paired with house-crafted sodas, cocktails, small batch liquors & a lovingly curated wine list ranging from the obscure to the popular- all at neighborhood prices.

Little Saint's modern farmhouse interior, designed by owner Frances Santarella, reflects the sensibilities of the neighborhood while also paying tribute to Richmond's shift towards local + fresh ingredients--and of course highlights Southern hospitality! The attention to detail showcases eco-friendly products, energy-efficient lighting + machinery, seasonality + a commitment to local artisans, farmers and craftsmen.

The seventy-five seat restaurant offers three engaging dining options: the lively, bar-height communal tables in the North Room , the traditional table side options in the South Room and the sunny sections of the outdoor patio.

The kitchen offers an array of fare, from seared local sea scallops to gluten-free fried chicken + waffles. Special attention is paid to dietary restrictions, with keto-friendly, gluten-free, and vegan + vegetarian choices. With each dish, one local ingredient is the star--be it Autumn Olive Farms pork, New Frontier bison, or Twin Oaks tofu-- accompanied by SIP certified wines, seasonal accompaniments, with a team of caring chefs + waitstaff as the supporting cast.  A team of award-winning bartenders transform seasonal  fruits and vegetables (along with small-batch local liquors) into unique cocktails. The wine list is curated of sustainable, local, unique and cutting edge wines from rock star winemakers, scientists and salt of the earth people making good wine the right way-- with a love of community.
