Together with Owner and Manager Russell Wilde formerly of The Butcher Grill & Cafe Bar Deli, each bring their expertise in the restaurant business to the fore.

The premises was previously The Gig's Place; a late night, greasy spoon eatery. Unloved and falling into disrepair in the last few years, the building has been lovingly repaired and refurbished, giving it back its dignity and making it one of the most beautiful and inviting buildings on the street.

Impressed by Richmond's New Gig : Gillian Nelis, The Sunday Business Post

"(Richmond) is turning out impressively cooked and flavourful food for a very fair price, which is exactly what a good neighbourhood restaurant should be doing. Throw in some really great service and wines to suit a range of budgets and you've got a pretty enticing proposition..."
