Here, you will not only find comfort food, but dishes that were designed to pair well with wine. Cheese and charcuterie plates, cheese fondue, soups and sandwiches and the main staples here. Although, if you love variety, you will find that some items on the fresh sheet are changed daily. This is to keep up with the limited storage space and maintain ingredient freshness.
So rather than order a drink or 2 and some appies, our party ended up ordering a full-blown meal, trying almost everything on the menu.
I've visited Gudrun once more a week after my visit and both times I must say that the quality of the food is consistent. The salads are always tasty and refreshing, even to those who prefer meat over veggies. On my second visit, we ordered the cheese fondue which consisted of 3 types of cheese (I believe 2 of them were Gruyere and Emmental). We were delighted dipping cubed baguette and whole wheat bread into the smooth, bubbling, cheesy sauce.
|Crab cake with refreshing corn salsa; simply delicious.|
|Meat sandwich with new potato salad|
|Toulouse sausages with smashed potatoes, roasted tomato and caramelized onion|
It was really nice to discover that Richmond has a gem like this and I definitely look forward to visit Gudrun Tasting Room again.
