Snazzy spring jazz

In its new location on Water Street, Escafe is showing off its new digs with a fresh spring menu and live jazz (rather than the screwdrivers and regrettable midnight karaoke pairings so popular at its former locale). Crooner Carol Covell, a mainstay of the Richmond Jazz Society for nearly 15 years, and Skip Gailes, a VCU jazz piano and saxophone instructor, solidify the classy new image. Sit out on the patio with a flute of bubbly and let the smooth standards wash over you.

Friday 4/26 Escafé Restaurant, 215 W. Water St. 295-8668.
