Regionally inspired and masterfully crafted, The Jefferson Hotel has a rich history of creating extraordinary dining experiences that are memorable in every way. The hotel's premier restaurant is Lemaire, a New American restaurant providing a fresh, modern culinary experience steeped in history. Located in what was the hotel's ladies parlor, the restaurant is named for Etienne Lemaire who served as Maitre d'Hotel to Thomas Jefferson from 1794 through the end of his presidency. The menu features extraordinary Virginia grown ingredients and the Southern influences of Richmond. The unique structure of the menu will allow guests to customize their experience during each visit, whether gathering with friends in the lounge for appetizers and cocktails or enjoying an evening out in the dining room.

Additional culinary experiences include a classic Southern afternoon tea, served Friday through Sunday in the Palm Court lobby, and a delicious Sunday champagne brunch.
