Max’s on Broad is a spacious two-floor Belgian eatery on Brook Road with lovely views over Broad Street. Owned by Ted Santarella, Max’s has an air of an old European brasserie with octagon tile floors and décor elements of iron, wood and brass, and boasts an appropriately Belgian and French menu.
Try French favorites such as onion soup, foie gras, and beef carpaccio, or one of the tasty sandwiches for lunch. Great dinner picks include grilled ahi tuna, jumbo crab and short rib ravioli. MAX’s on Broad offers a selection of over 100 wines by the glass, half-bottle or bottle, as well as craft beers and cocktails. If you are celebrating a unique occasion, Max’s on Broad is one of the best Richmond restaurants for couples. 305 Brook Rd., Richmond, 804-225-0400 (website)
