A new restaurant Southern Blues will apparently be moving into the Tony’s BBQ spot at 207 North 3rd Street. The location will be “a full service restaraunt serving the best BBQ and southern cuisine in downtown Richmond”.
The restaurant applied for an ABC license on 10/18.
207 North 3rd Street RVA
Update by Paul:
I stopped by here a while back. The place has been fixed up on the inside. The old linoleum floors are gone and so are the regulars (so far) that spent the day sipping 44′s and hanging out on the sidewalk. There is a listening room upstairs that is currently being used as rehearsal space. Here’s a sample of folk art gallery on the walls.
