Lemaire is located in The Jefferson Hotel, just off the main “Palm Court” area of the hotel. The downtown Richmond location makes Lemaire and The Jefferson easily accessible by both private transportation and on foot. The restaurant (and hotel) is just nine miles from Richmond International Airport and close to Interstates 64 and 95. Since Richmond is a mid-size U.S. city, taxis are readily available to you get to the restaurant. If you drive yourself, The Jefferson offers both guests staying at the property and those visiting for a meal the option of valet at the Franklin Street entrance and self-park at the Main Street entrance. Although Richmond has some forms of public transportation, such as the Greater Richmond Transit Company (GRTC) bus system, we think your best bet is to make your way to Lemaire via car or by foot if you’re in the neighborhood.
