Passion The Restaurant

A stunning and beautiful restaurant, located in the Greenbrier area of Chesapeake, featuring creative, innovative cuisine from local farmers and fisherman.   Passion's menu is based on the concept of Terroir, by providing seasonal, regional and local foods prepared using a "French Technique" in an American style. Terroir, a French term associated with wine, coffee and tea, is used to denote the special characteristics that geography bestowed upon them. It can be very loosely translated as "a sense of place" which is embodied in certain qualities, and the sum of the effects that the local environment has had on the manufacture of the product.


Three backyard fruit trees sparked what is today a thriving gourmet food business for Rowena Fullinwider, founder and president of Rowena's, Inc, in Norfolk, Virginia.  As word spread about the "cake lady", requests for Rowena's specialty foods exceeded the capabilities of her kitchen.   Rowena opened her gourmet manufacturing facility in May of 1983 and in 25 years; her facility has grown to 18 employees, a retail store, staff offices, call center, tearoom, two spacious kitchens and two warehouses.  Rowena's has been featured in national publications such as Ladies Home Journal, Gourmet, Bon Appétit, Taste of Home and Southern Living, and has appeared on Food Finds on the Food Network, QVC, The 700 Club and The Today Show. Virginia's Governor who declared Feb 20th as "Rowena Fullinwider Day" also has honored her.
