Andrea Poe | September 9, 2014 | Travel
For years, Virginia Beach, like many beachfront resort communities, was better known for fun food like burgers, fries, and ice cream than it was for award-winning cuisine. But that's changing thanks to a thriving culinary scene driven in large part by a serious commitment to locally sourced food.
