Richmond, VA (June 27, 2019) – Linden Row Inn and Trolley House Refreshments, Inc. are excited to announce the upcoming opening of a new restaurant concept in

 the historic Linden Row Inn in Downtown Richmond, Virginia called Parterre. This partnership also brings with it an exclusive catering relationship with Groovin’ Gourmets Catering and Events.

Parterre, a new full-service restaurant, and craft cocktail bar will feature a unique selection of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options along with craft wine, beer, and cocktails. Menus will focus on regional southern comfort food with items such as smoked wings, pickled deviled eggs, and po’boys. Parterre will offer grab and go items, including retail beer, wine, and food products, catering to both hotel and restaurant guests alike.

“Drawing inspiration from the hotel’s historical relationship with Edgar Allan Poe, Parterre was named after one of Poe’s romantic odes, ‘To Helen.’ The poem features a mention of the ‘enchanted parterre’, or ornamental garden, located on the Linden Row grounds. We could not be more excited about the opportunity to give both the guests of Linden Row Inn and Richmond residents a new location that everyone can enjoy,” said Chase Seymour, Director of Culinary Services for Parterre.

“We are thrilled about welcoming Groovin’ Gourmets and Parterre to Linden Row,” said Vishal Savani, Managing Partner of Linden Row Inn. “The Trolley House team’s extensive culinary experience, coupled with their demonstrated commitment to stellar service, will undoubtedly provide our guests with an outstanding selection of locally sourced and freshly prepared dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner while offering our meeting and events clients with an unrivaled menu of catering options.”

“As local business owners we are excited to partner with Linden Row Inn,” said Scott Halloran, CEO of Parterre and Groovin’ Gourmets. “We believe our company cultures are a perfect fit and our new concept, Parterre, blends nicely with the history of Linden Row. We would like to recognize and thank our Director of Culinary, Chase Seymour and his wife Anna Seymour for their contributions in creating this new restaurant concept. Additionally, our catering company, Groovin’ Gourmets, excels at creating stylish events, crafting delicious dishes and delivering excellent service. This is a tremendous opportunity for both companies to create unforgettable experiences for all guests.” the Linden Row Inn is expected to open in late Summer 2019.
