Which restaurants would you recommend to a tourist visiting Norfolk for the first time? There are so many good choices! The cuisine is so nourishing. There are goodies galore.
Yet there remains too many critics who have not given Norfolk a fair shake. We wish they’d reconsider. But that really doesn’t matter in Norfolk. This place does not seek outside validation. You could write a PhD thesis on how these amazing restaurants have changed the culture for the better.
Are organic foods healthier? Or do the classics need a healthy reboot? These restaurants have the chops to solve either riddle. In Norfolk, the chefs will make you question reality after you taste their creations. We sure prefer the restaurants that cook up savory dishes mixed with sweet yet sour accents. Be sure to seek these treats out.
We have picked a mix of classic standbys. And we then put them next to new hot places. This is a full survey of the dining scene in Norfolk. Try these places when visiting in summer, winter or fall.
