Organic Krush – a new 100% organic restaurant – is now open at Short Pump | Restaurant news
A new 100% organic restaurant is now open in the Short Pump Crossing shopping center.
Organic Krush was launched in New York in 2015 and the restaurant group now has four locations across Long Island.
The Henrico location at 3406 Pump Road will be a kind of homecoming for co-owner Michelle Walrath, who graduated from the University of Richmond in 1998.
Walrath and his business partner Fran Paniccia opened the first Organic Krush “as a practical solution to the lack of clean, hormone-free and pesticide-free food options to feed their families,” according to a statement.
The restaurant, which calls itself a “lifestyle restaurant,” serves a fully organic menu consisting of salads, tacos, wraps, acai bowls, soups and bone broth. Organic Krush also offers an all-day breakfast, a children’s menu, juices, and gluten-free baked goods. Appetizers include chicken burritos ($ 14), salmon and avocado wrap ($ 16), avocado toast ($ 10), and a spicy Korean barbecue ($ 14).
Krushopened organic on Saturday September 28 and is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and weekends from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The group has “plans for rapid and significant expansion in 2020, opening a second location in Richmond and six to eight additional locations in the three northern states. Central Virginia will eventually have up to five stores.” , according to a press release. .
