Ruta Elvikyte

Don’t let the word “bar” fool you. Rappahannock is so much more than an oyster bar thanks to the work of chef Kevin Kelly who adds exceptional ceviche, perfectly prepared scallops, and even a Lowcountry-worthy shrimp and grits to what appears to be just another oyster bar. Of course the oysters aren’t bad either. Rappahannock comes from Richmond, Va. via cousins Travis and Ryan Croxton. The two took over their family’s 200-acre oyster leases in 2001 with no aquaculture knowledge. Today they own six restaurants and distribute their sought-after Chesapeake oysters to some of the top restaurants in the nation. If that’s not enough to get you in the door, go for the novelty. Rappahannock serves its oysters with hot sauce delivered via apothecary eye droppers to portion out the perfect amount of drops. Genius! —Kinsey Gidick (Dish, Winter 2019)
