1609 Food


Our Story

At 1609, we pay homage to Virginia’s rich horse racing history by proudly applying age-old culinary techniques to create unique blends and flavors that capture the essence of the Commonwealth. From Sir Archy, considered the father of All-American Thoroughbreds, to 1973 Triple Crown Champion, Secretariat, we recognize the grit and determination of the Colonist, as well as the renowned Virginian owners and trainers. That said, there is nothing more personal than breaking bread and sharing memories from home. Through our signature Southern cuisine and flavorful fare, we proudly honor individuals from seven nations coming together to share their racing experience.
