CO-OWNER/HEAD CHEF BRIAN RANDOLPH: Opening in the Spring 2018, Randolph's on the River is a coming home story for Chef Brian. He began his culinary career as a teenager in 1984 in Colonial Beach working for The Happy Clam. He later transitioned into the catering business and eventually started Le Box Lunch, a Richmond Institution in corporate catering. Following the sale of Le Box, he opened Tony's 4th Street Grill in downtown Richmond and later sold that business as well. About 5 years ago, he took on the position of Head Chef and Manager at a local seafood restaurant. It's now time for him to have his own place again and nothing feels more like home than going back a stone's throw from where it all began over 30 years ago!
Because he has been in the area for so long, Chef Brian already utilizes local farmers and fisherman for many of his ingredients. The menu will feature local seasonal specialties as well as classic Northern Neck cuisine. Everything is homemade from the sauces to the desserts. Between the amazing fresh food choices and the even more amazing view, Randolph's on the River is sure to become a local favorite!
CO-OWNER/MANAGER LYNN MAREADY: Lynn grew up in a military family. Both of her Grandfathers were Aviators in WWII and her dad is a retired Navy Captain and Vietnam Veteran. She homeschooled her two daughters for 14 years and then entered the workforce as an insurance agent for the world's largest military insurance provider.
With a Bachelor's degree in Management and an MBA in Marketing from the University of Miami, she is ready to put her education to good use as the Manager of Randolph's on the River!
Lynn and Brian first partnered together over ten years ago to Coach and Manage Junior Tennis Teams for the USTA in Virginia. They are thrilled to be working together again at Randolph's!
