"This bastion of the Old South — complete with cobblestoned streets and blocks of historic row houses — has seen an influx of young newcomers attracted by a strong economy and the bike-friendly, DIY vibe," reads the article. "With easy access to Virginia's fertile farms and rugged coast, chefs here are adding modern twists to Southern classics, like the black-eyed pea falafel at Pasture and the wood-fired Virginia scallops at Rappahannock."

Richmond is called one a "Best City for Food" by Men's Journal. Richmond will share space on the list with picks ranging from Fayetteville, AR and Missoula, MT to big names like Houston, Oakland, Salt Lake City, Seattle and Saint Paul.

The article will be in the April issue of the magazine.
