To connect our guests to the local artisans who provide the ingredients we use at our restaurants, we created Our Story. During Our Story events our local vendors make their rounds to each Boathouse location and Casa del Barco to share their mission and provide you with a taste of their product. This month we have linked up with the masters of craft beer, Stone Brewing!
This summer has definitely been one for the books! It even brought about the creation of our brand new partnership with celebrate! RVA! We enjoy reaching out and getting involved with our community because we know that without them we would not be able to do what we love.
The Boathouse is committed to providing guests with locally sourced cuisine. We believe that it’s not just about the flavor of the food (although that’s pretty important too), but it’s also about the quality.
The Boathouse and Casa del Barco feature a different local vendor every month as a way to connect our guests with the source of the local food that they receive at our restaurants. For the month of June we featured Chapel Creek Oyster Co. for Our Story.

Wine Wednesday has been a weekly event at The Boathouse for many years now. Our Beverage Director and Sommelier, Michael Avery, features new wines monthly, offering samplings to our guests at a different location each week.
Earlier this year, we had Caromont Farm join us to share the inspiration behind their artisan cheeses. Coming up on July 30th, they will be hosting the last Dinner in the Field of the 2016 season in Virginia before Chefs Paige and Gregorio head across the pond to set tables in London and Italy.
