But talking to Jody Pennette, the founder of CB5, is a confidence builder. He not only seems to understand the problems that many diners encounter in big-style restaurants - is this a lounge with a kitchen? - but how to find the right balance for each project. "We've found that there's a special balance in entertainment dining and that some people pump up the volume too much. It's hard to build a relationship with the guest if the atmosphere is intimidating or overwhelming."

Tatu is intended not as a late-night final destination but more as an evening starter, with the expectation that guests will move on to one of the dozens of bars within walking distance. "It's designed to light the fuse on your evening, but we have no plans to turn this into a club," says Pennette. "Tatu has no intention of being an all-night destination."
Style is definitely a part of the package here, but Pennette talks about how important the balance is: "People recognize that dining can be funny, spirited and sexy without sacrificing the quality of food."
Pennette is fun to talk to because he articulates perfectly the fuzzy ideas in your own head, making you feel smart for having them.

The 162-unit condominium tower is under construction between 14th and Virginia streets north of the canal's Turning Basin. "I think it's going to be bustling," said Jody Pennette, whose company plans to open Blanc Bleu restaurant and lounge that is part of the Riverside on the James development.  "When there's enough places gathering together, it becomes a destination." Richmond finished the $52 million restoration of the Canal Walk in 1999 in part to attract restaurants, nightclubs, housing and other development.

...
It will have a dramatic interior, with white upholstery, arches, mirrors, crystal chandeliers and sheer curtains, said Pennette, chief executive officer of CB5 Restaurant Group. Also in the spring, the Toad's Place of Richmond nightclub is expected to open in the renovated Lady Byrd Hat building on Virginia Street.  Toad's Place, initially slated to open in October 2005, will have a capacity for 1,600 people and feature live music and other entertainment.
