A Culinary Tour of the New Norfolk

Norfolk, Virginia, might be home to more U.S. Navy vessels than anywhere else in the world, but these days, the reasons to visit the historic seafaring town number even higher than the masses of frigates, carriers, destroyers, and cruisers bobbing around in the scenic harbor. There are 144 miles of shoreline begging for exploration, discoveries at every turn in the NEON (New Energy of Norfolk) District, and a year-round roster of events at the city’s revitalized Waterfront District and the nearby Town Point Park. But it’s the growing group of innovative chefs, restaurateurs, brewers, bartenders, and servers who are really making Norfolk a must-visit destination.

Join Garden & Gun as we tag along with Anna Liesemeyer, the creative engine behind the travel and lifestyle blog In Honor of Design, as she table-hops her way through the Tidewater town’s burgeoning culinary landscape. Dig in.
