Summer in Raleigh can be brutal. Vinnie’s invites you to walk out of the heat and into a cooled dining room full of familiar friends and tantalizing smells of delicious food. Stay for the seasonal dishes, enjoy a cold drink (or two) and make some unforgettable memories.
As the temperatures rise, some of your favorite crops flourish. Chef Tom has been hard at work gathering the best NC Okra, Butterbeans and other produce from our Local Farmer’s Markets.
Start your meal with our famous Fried Green Tomatoes, sliced to order and served with a house-made Pimento and Green Goddess Dip. What a treat!
Our crisp Raleigh City Farm Salad features Mixed Baby Lettuces with Grilled NC Peaches, House-Made Farm Cheese, Pickled Red Onions, Shaved Cucumber, Cherry Tomatoes and a White Balsamic Vinaigrette.
From our friends at Locals Seafood, we have a beautiful NC Vermilion Snapper with sautéed Zucchini “Noodles” and a rich, vibrant Romesco Sauce.
At the end of your dinner, remember to try our popular (and for a good reason) crisp and warm Blueberry Crostata, topped with homemade Peach Ice Cream and finished with Caramel Sauce. This amazing dessert will be available as long as NC Peaches and Blueberries are in season. Don’t delay on trying this cool summertime treat; just like this intense heat, it won’t last forever!
