Here are the restaurants:

  • 219 Bistro
  • 456 Fish
  • Blue Moon Taphouse
  • Birds & Bourbon
  • Glass Light Hotel & Gallery Restaurant
  • Grace O’Malley’s Irish Pub & Restaurant
  • Leone’s
  • Norfolk Seafood Co.
  • Prime 255
  • Soiree Bistro
  • Stripers Waterside
  • The Stockpot Norfolk

“After a 3-year hiatus, we are excited to be bringing the Crush Competition back to Downtown Norfolk,” said Sam Black, director of marketing and communications for Downtown Norfolk Council. “It’s a fun way to explore Downtown with your friends and see just how creative Downtown bartenders can be when you throw in a little friendly competition.”

The winning restaurant will also get $500 cash in addition to the bragging rights.
