New Restaurant Coming to Libbie Mill - Midtown

Breakfast, lunch and dinner fare will be offered by local restaurateur

HENRICO CO., VA., August 27, 2018 – Henrico-based Gumenick Properties is pleased to announce a new restaurant is coming to the Libbie Mill – Midtown community. The restaurant, with a name soon to be announced, has leased approximately 6,000 square feet in the building located at 4901 Libbie Mill East Boulevard, adding to the growing list of retailers moving to the new urban mixed-use development.

The restaurant, owned by Michael Cohan, will serve American cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a casual, family-friendly setting. “Part of our goal for Libbie Mill – Midtown is to be a place where our residents, commercial tenants and the RVA community-at-large can come to relax,” said Gumenick Properties’ Regional Manager Karen Bunch. “This restaurant adds yet another way to enjoy Libbie Mill-Midtown.”

Cohan runs two successful restaurants, Marty’s Grill and Riverbound Café, and the craft brewery Brewville, all in Mechanicsville, VA. “We’ve had great success in Mechanicsville and are excited about expanding,” remarked Cohan. “We are delighted more people across metro Richmond will be able to experience our cuisine thanks to Libbie Mill-Midtown’s central location.” The restaurant is planned to open in the Spring of 2019.

The addition of a new restaurant at Libbie Mill - Midtown comes on the heels of Lumber Liquidators announcing its intent to relocate its office headquarters there. These plans along with continued sales of new townhomes and condominiums, pre-leasing of apartments at Penstock Quarter, a new 327-unit apartment community, and the marketing of Harp’s Landing, a six-story Class-A office building to be built next to the Libbie Mill Library, exemplify Gumenick Properties’ efforts to make Libbie Mill – Midtown the anchor to the growing midtown community.
