Kitchen 64 (Richmond, VA)

While driving up the east coast, I met my friend Ariana at Kitchen 64 in Richmond, VA. Is it a diner? To be determined, but it had all of the regular diner foods; it looked like a diner and acted like a diner.

Kitchen 64 (Richmond, VA) Atmosphere: A

Kitchen 64 is located on a corner and appears like any other diner. It’s not a big metallic restaurant but. It’s a vintage-style old-school restaurant with plenty of parking and outdoor seating. It looks like they even a covered patio that has an outside feel but is protected from the elements. Inside, there is also plenty of seating with a total length bar and plenty of booths. Inside, you can see the kitchen, which I always find cool. I haven’t been to many diners lately that you can see the entire kitchen. We sat inside in one of the wooden booths.

As we were leaving around noon, there was already a long wait to eat at the diner. I was surprised because there was plenty of parking when we got there, and I almost thought too much. Then when we left, almost every spot was taken.

Kitchen 64 (Richmond, VA) Food: A

The Kitchen 64 menu has everything a typical diner would have—lots of different breakfast and lunch specials, including pancakes, eggs, and sandwiches. You can see the full Kitchen 64 menu here. I was intrigued by the Sherwood Forest salad, which came with thinly sliced prime rib over mixed greens. I honestly don’t know if I’ve ever had a prime rib salad (diner or not), so it sounded fun.

The salad itself was good and was fairly large for the price of $12.95. In all, it was a great salad, and the prime rib wasn’t overcooked (which often times the meat on salads is). I am happy I ordered it and would again.

Cost: $

For the salad and coffee, it was $15.

Kitchen 64 (Richmond, VA) Service: A

The waitress was friendly, and our food came out fast. The waitress was kind as it took us a while to decide what we wanted to eat since we were so busy catching up. I was honestly shocked with how fast the food came out. We were in and out in less than an hour. I could have sat and talked for hours.
