Laura Lee's is an updated take on the American fern bar, with a focus on great food set in a welcoming environment in Richmond's Southside. Our space is comfortable and lovely, with living walls, padded chairs and semi-circular booths, and a classic mirrored bar.
We have a contemporary and family-friendly American menu with seasonal and creative cuisine from Chef Scott Lewis (The Roosevelt, Southbound, Six Burner).
Kacie Shortridge (The Roosevelt) is the talent behind Laura Lee's cocktails, including the signature Tiger's Eye.
The indomitable Michael Smith (The Roosevelt, Amuse), our front of the house manager, won an Elby award in 2017 for his dedication to good service.
