NORFOLK, Va. – (February 2019) – Downtown Norfolk Council and Selden Market welcome The Stockpot Norfolk at 215 E. Plume Street. The second venture for Chef Anne Galante and partner Patrick Edwards is larger than their first restaurant located in Virginia Beach’s ViBe Creative District on 19thStreet, which opened in 2015.
The Downtown Norfolk location seats 50 in the beautiful two-story 2,000-square-foot space. The restaurant is centered around a wrap-around bar exposing the open kitchen. A second floor loft overlooks the dining room that is surrounded in booths. The sleek look is enhanced with exposed brick and original concrete and tile floors.
Galante uses quality ingredients from local purveyors and creates from scratch. The original soup restaurant concept has morphed into a healthy comfort food café. The menu features signature soups including bone broth in addition to breakfasts, toasts, salads and sides.
“We’ve been planning this for more than a year,” said Galante. “We have received a very warm welcome and want to understand this market better to determine what they want as far as ramen nights or extended hours.”
The Norfolk hours are Monday through Friday 8 am to 7 pm and Saturday 8 am to 4 pm. Soups and specials change daily. Cocktails, cider and craft beers have been added to the menu. For additional information, visit www.stockpotsoups.com.
