What’s New At Vinnie’s
Summer is in full swing and we hope you are finding ways to stay cool. If not, Vinnie’s has your solution! The best way to spend a hot summer night in Raleigh is to walk into a cooled dining room full of chatter, laughs and delicious smells. We invite you to enjoy some seasonal dishes, a cold drink (or two) and conversation with good friends.
This week in the kitchen, Chef Tom is offering some great summertime features. Start with our Heirloom Tomato Salad with Summer Melons, Cucumber, Radish, Toasted Cornbread Crumble and a House-made Basil Crème Fraîche.
We love being able to get fresh, local vegetables from our NC farmers. Back by popular demand and fresh from the State Farmers’ Market, we will have Fried NC Okra and Southern-Style Butterbeans, perfect to compliment any meal.
This week’s fresh catch is NC Red Grouper from our friends at Locals Seafood. Chef Tom will be grilling this hearty fish and serving it over a bed of Corn and Butterbean Succotash and drizzling it with a Citrus Beurre Blanc.
For dessert, just what you’ve all been asking about… our very popular Blueberry Crostata will be here as long as Peaches and Blueberries are in season! Served with homemade Peach Ice Cream and Caramel Sauce, it is the perfect way to end an already perfect meal.
