What’s New At Vinnie’s

June is the gateway into Summer and with that in mind the anticipation for some of your Summer favorites has been building. As the days grow longer and warmer, so does the list of available seasonal crops from all of Chef Tom’s farmer friends. That means lots of new and exciting flavors for you to try in the coming days and weeks.

Start your meal off with our Fried Green Tomatoes… thinly sliced, fried to perfection and served to you with house-made Pimento Cheese and Green Goddess Dip. What a treat!

Enjoy fresh local greens with this week’s Blue Sky Farms Salad, consisting of Baby Mixed Lettuces tossed in a Whole Grain Mustard Vinaigrette adorned with Johnston County Prosciutto, Asparagus Tips, Pickled Red Onions, Radishes, and Cured Egg Yolk.

From our friends at Locals Seafood, we have fresh NC Snowy Grouper served with Roasted Yukon Gold Potatoes, Arugula and a Pecan-Romesco Sauce.

In the Tavern, our Featured Burger is a Fried Green Tomato Burger! Certified Angus Beef Burger, topped with Pimento Cheese, Fried Green Tomato and served with Green Goddess.

Many of you have already been asking about another of Chef Tom’s popular seasonal desserts and it will be just a few more weeks before Peaches and Blueberries really get into season.

In the meantime, come in to try one of our old favorites- Cinnamon Churros with homemade Chocolate Ice Cream, Tequila-Lime Caramel, Toasted Pumpkin Seeds and Candied Lime Zest.

We would also like to remind you that Vinnie’s will be closed the entire week of July 4th, Tuesday, July 2nd through Saturday, July 6th to give our staff some much needed R&R and to spruce things up a little at Vinnie’s. We will reopen for normal business hours on Tuesday, July 9th. We hope you have a safe and happy holiday, but we hope to see you at Vinnie’s before the break!
