the boot

The Boot is a local kitchen on 21st St in Norfolk’s historic Ghent neighborhood. As the former owners of Relative Theory Records, David Hausmann and Josh Wright have graduated to their next communal experience. The Boot’s menu is heavily inspired by Italian cuisine yet they work closely to establish relationships with Virginia farmers and bring the freshest ingredients of the season to the table. By getting his ingredients locally, Chef Brendan Vesey is able to explore and preserve our fine Virginia heritage food-ways.

So that their former venture does not slip too far from their hearts, several nights a week, the restaurant also serves as a music venue to showcase both local and traveling artists.

Open Tues-Sun @5pm, Free WiFi
