Gourmet sandwich shop TASTE Unlimited will offer live music on the lawn once again at its 4097 Shore Drive location. The City Council last week approved the restaurant’s request for a permit allowing outdoor performances. TASTE hosted acoustic bands two summers ago but halted the concerts after learning the restaurant’s business permit didn’t allow live music. The free music performances, “Live on the Lawn,” are expected to run on Fridays in the summer. The permit allows the concerts to go until 9 p.m.

Gold Key | PHR, the restaurant and hotel management company, partnered with local Cullipher Farm and Eventide Oysters, to bring local ingredients to its restaurants, including Catch 31, Salacia, Lager Heads and Mahi Mah’s.

Cullipher Farm will harvest a 5-acre farm at 1065 First Colonial Road exclusively for Gold Key’s restaurants. Eventide Oysters is dedicating a bed large enough to supply the restaurants with Lynnhaven oysters.
