Soul Food, Historic Inns in Richmond

by Jan Schroder
Jefferson Hotel, Richmond, Virginia

We sat perched in the cramped entrance to Mama J’s Kitchen, but it was worth the wait for the best fried catfish and corn muffins we’d ever had.

Our visits to Richmond always include a visit here and a stay in the historic Linden Row Inn downtown, housed in seven row houses dating back to the mid-1800s. Edgar Allen Poe played in the garden here, now a courtyard.

On a future visit, I hope to stay in The Jefferson Hotel. Opened in 1895 by Richmond’s wealthiest citizen, Lewis Ginter, the hotel has survived two fires and hosted 13 presidents.
