From Our Blog


Our Employee Spotlight this month comes from our home office in Richmond, VA. Senior Producer, Emily Gault, has been an integral member of ASL’s commercial lines team for six years. Her knowledge of the insurance industry and commitment to customer service is the core of ASL’s culture. It makes her an asset to her underwriting team and the clients she interacts with on a daily basis. We chatted with Emily to learn a little bit more about her professional and personal life.

This week, we are starting the first installment in a series of restaurant spotlights from all the places ASL calls home. It seemed fitting that we start with the ASL’s home town, Richmond, Virginia. Millie’s Diner opened in May of 1989 in Richmond’s historic Church Hill neighborhood. While the outside of this Richmond landmark restaurant can be underwhelming, the food is guaranteed to excite you. Millie’s changes their dinner menu every three weeks to keep their diners coming back for more. Don’t let the name fool you, Millie’s Diner is anything but your typical diner food fare. With appetizers like Roasted Bone Marrow with tomato-bacon jam and roasted cauliflower, to entrees like Pan Seared Black Bass and Arroz con Puerco, Millie’ is way more than just a hamburger joint. Don’t worry — if you want a hamburger, their lunch menu has you covered. If brunch is more your thing, you are sure to find one of your favorites on their brunch menu which has earned them Best Brunch in Richmond twice.

This week’s food spotlight is a tale of two cities. ASL has offices in Illinois and New York, so it’s fitting that we talk about the ongoing battle between the two state’s largest cities. For some that might be the Cubs vs the Mets. (or White Sox vs Yankees.) However for today’s food spotlight it means: Chicago deep dish vs New York thin crust! *I would like to note that we could have done this with hot dogs too, but I wanted to be fair. So, I picked a debate topic that gave the New Yorkers an actual chance to win (maybe). While we do know that Chicago style deep-dish originated at Uno’s. We don’t know for sure if was invented by Ike Sewell or original chef Rudy Malnati. Either way, the deep-dish pizza — known for its pie like appearance, cheesy goodness and any kind of topping you can think — is enjoyed by millions everywhere. It’s baked in a round steel pan similar to a cake or pie pan. The crust can also be stuffed. When ordered for delivery or carry out, the pies are uncut to prevent oils from soaking in causing a soggy crust. You can even have it shipped to you if you don’t live near Chicago!
