Rockfish at Mamma Zu's
When in Richmond, VA you really should check out Mamma Zu's. This Italian eatery looks like somewhere that I would have been hesitant to enter had I not been taken there on business. What looks like a hole in the wall turned out to be the home of simple yet excellent food. The kitchen is so small that they limit your table to two orders of fried oysters (that were probably the best I had every eaten) simply because they don't have the fryer space to keep up with demand. I am calling this a fishing related entry since one of the excellent dishes I tasted was the rockfish served with garlic pasta. If you plan on trying this unique place, keep in mind that they don't take plastic at Mamma Zu's.
