Executive Chef Laine Myers


Rooted deeply in Italian/Mediterranean tradition and inspiration, Nota Bene showcases modern variations on fresh pasta made in-house, local vegetables, Neapolitan pizzas and wood-fired proteins. Built from our humble "mobile" beginnings, the award-winning Nota Bene has become Richmond’s premiere brick-oven restaurant. Our name means "to take note", and that is the approach that drives every aspect of what we do; beginning with the simplicity of cooking fresh, locally sourced food in a wood-fired oven.

At Nota Bene, our focus is on creating food and libations that reflect the same philosophy. Our focus on natural, organic and biodynamic wines celebrates the artisans exceptional product while being mindful of sourcing, technique, and environment, the same approach we take in the kitchen.

We strive to promote food and wine that elevates dining, reflects our Mediterranean inspiration while sparking conversation and education. It’s a "guests first" approach to embracing a movement in a city where the food culture is piquing interest on a national level.

Executive Chef Laine Myers


I opened Graffiato in 2014 where I worked as a sous until late 2016, then came to Metzger. I was proud to win this year’s Broad Appetit  “Iron Chef” competition. My inspiration from childhood was my German grandmother, who never let anyone go hungry and cooked meals around the clock including brisket with spaetzle, cow tongue, and gingerbread, among other things. My style stems from cuisines emphasizing bold Mediterranean/Caspian and Western European flavors. In my free time, I enjoy hiking with my mom, playing guitar, and am completely obsessed with my 7.5 pound sweet angel dachshund/chihuahua, ZsaZsa.

Sous Chef Evan Carpin


Evan has worked for Nota Bene since it's mobile wood-fired oven inception in 2011. He has proven to be an up-and-coming talent:  intuitive, creative, and hardworking. His contributions to Nota Bene have been key to its success. 



It started with Pizza Club in our back yard in 2010. Moved to the farmer's market with our mobile wood fired oven, breakfast pizzas and pizza packets. We had a retail presence at Ellwood Thompsons, Relay Foods and Little House (to name a few). Eventually we started doing catering and food truck events. All of it landed us here with a brick and mortar. We have changed quite a bit from our Pizza Tonight days and we continue to learn and grow. When I'm not in the restaurant I like to travel and eat all the food with my friends, husband Joe, and kids. At home you can find me in the garden and hanging out with our furry family, Chairman, Lewis, Ruben and Oliver.
