FOODĒ is about community, through and through. Born in historic downtown Fredericksburg in 2011 with a simple concept: find the best ingredients the region has to offer, hire the most talented team possible, cook the kinds of foods that evoke fond memories, and most importantly, do it with love. From there, the community of Fredericksburg responded. Today FOODĒ is a bit bigger and has a hip little sister called Mercantile and a home in the Historic National Bank Building. FOODĒ is still built on the same principles: do it with love and everything else will be fine.
