RICHWOOD GRILL is one of Morgantown's most progressive restaurants, specializing in global fusion created from locally grown organic ingredients. Richwood Grill is dedicated to the essential concept of sustainable agriculture and the belief that natural ingredients simply taste better.
The menu is seasonally designed and reflects the freshest items Appalachia has to offer. The Morgantown Farmers Market supplies the inspiration and many of the ingredients needed to create dishes from around the globe, a tribute to West Virginia's cultural and agricultural diversity. Cuisines from Appalachian to North African, Brazilian to Burmese, Japanese to Javanese, Portuguese to Pakastani, all created with local organic ingredients, can be found on the constantly evolving menu.
Housed in the renovated 1923 Studebaker garage, Richwood Grill features a spectacular view of Downtown Morgantown and an atmosphere of casual modern cool. The drink list features nearly 200 varieties of wines from over 60 regions and a large selection of microbrews and imported beers which compliment the extensive premium liquor collection. The collection of over 77 pemium tequilas is unquestionably the finest in the state.
Richwood Grill is owned by a husband-and-wife team, Alegria Holland and Executive Chef Marion Ohlinger, who have over 45 years of combined restaurant experience and have traveled to nearly 40 countries and all 50 states. After working restaurants in such diverse regions as Vail, Scottsdale, backcountry Alaska and most notably the renowned global fusion pioneer Meridian in downtown Seattle, the couple returned to Morgantown in 2003 and opened Solera Cafe, West Virginia's first Latin fusion restaurant and introduced one of the first ceviche bars in the area.
Selected by the West Virginia Department of Tourism as one of the 101 Most Unique Destinations in West Virginia and the winner of several culinary awards, Solera Cafe evolved into Richwood Grill in the summer of 2009 to better utilize the variety of ingredients available locally in West Virginia.
