    Not bad at all on Sat. morning.

    City Diner has permission to park on the dry cleaners lot next door - about 10-12 spaces and no meter street parking.

    Arby's lot (across Strawberry St) is empty this time of day too.

    Yata hey

    PS - they have the 2nd best bacon in town - I have the best at home through a private source.

    Yata hey

    There's a lot just to the west of the building, shared with the dry cleaner. There's street parking on the south side of Broad and around the corner- no meters. There's the massive DMV lot across Broad Street. There are lots behind DMV and south of the Worker's Comp building. The lot at the Diamond is usually locked unless there is an event. They tow at the Arthur Ashe Center unless there is an event.The Convention Center/Coliseum parking decks - you can catch a bus from Broad Street. My place is about 15 miles south - room in the driveway for about 3 cars. No bus service.

    Better to ask about seating availability. Be on time or you may have to sit at the children's table.

    stay safe.

    We can always take over a section as we did at O'Charley's.

    City Diner does reserve seating on a first come basis for regular customers of which I am one.

    That's mid-town Richmond.

    Downtown still has parking meters.

    Re bacon: they make up in quantity what little they may lack in quality.

    Only once have I heard Grapeshot whinge & whine about the bacon at City Diner - and then it was only about one end of one piece.

    Be aware that the Big Bertha (or whatever the correct name is) scrambled eggs & garlic will stay on your breath for the rest of the day.

    stay safe.
