What’s New At Vinnie’s

All around Raleigh is a sight to be seen with beautiful colors of Spring in full bloom. We love being able to provide you with the freshest seasonal fare that NC has to offer. We are transitioning to some wonderful Spring dishes and looking forward to what our local farmers will have in store for us as Spring advances.

Start your meal with our featured appetizer… Pecan-Crusted Outer Banks Scallops, fried to a beautiful Golden Brown and served with our house-made Sriracha Aioli.
This week is your last chance for Chef Tom’s delicious Butternut Squash Bisque topped with Crispy Oyster Mushrooms, Smoked Sour Cream and Scallions.

As Spring sets in and the weather begins to warm, Chef Tom is ready to bring back NEW versions of our Blue Sky Farms Salad featuring the freshest NC produce. Check in later this week to see what our first featured salad of the season will consist of.

Many of you have been asking about mushroom sides and Chef Tom has answered with his Duck Fat Mushrooms. Wild Mushrooms sauteed in duck fat and finished with shallots and fresh thyme. These are sure to be a wonderful addition to any entree.

Tomorrow, from our friends at Locals Seafood, we will have NC Swordfish… You can also enjoy a Cold-water Maine Lobster Tail as an entrée or you can always add it to your favorite steak to make it a Surf & Turf. We also have a limited supply of fresh NC Flounder, Outer Banks Scallops and New Zealand Lamb Chops. With so many options to choose from you’ll have to dine with us more than once this week!

It’s your LAST CHANCE to try our beautiful Baked Alaska. Later this week we will be featuring a NEW Seasonally Inspired Dessert … Southern Style Poundcake with homemade Lemon Buttermilk Ice Cream.

Finally, it’s the time of year when some of our favorite local publications begin collecting votes for their Annual “Best Of” Lists and we’d like you to help us show everyone how great Vinnie’s really is. We have provided links to Wake Living Magazine and Indy Week for your convenience so you can do your part. We greatly appreciate your vote for any category you think would suit us.


As we transition during this phase, seating will be limited due to capacity restrictions, so reservations are strongly recommended. Please call us directly at 919-847-7319, visit our website or find us on Open Table. In an effort to promote social distancing we ask that once you arrive for your reservation, please call the front desk to check-in. We will let you know when your table is ready.

If you aren’t ready to come out and join us at Vinnie’s, we would still love to cook for you. Vinnie’s offers take out, including curbside pick up. Give us a call at 919-847-7319 and we will be happy to assist you. You can view our limited menu at Vinnie’s Website.

We’d like to thank you for your patience as we work to make your dining experience as safe and enjoyable as possible. We appreciate your continued loyalty and support.
