What’s New At Vinnie’s…
Springtime is filled with cool mornings, warm afternoons, and the delightful nostalgic scent of Honeysuckle in the air. Just what many of you have been waiting to hear about…Chef Tom has been scouring the Raleigh Greenways looking for those sweet yellow Honeysuckle blossoms that you’ve probably been seeing and smelling. This week, but for a limited time, he is offering his most anticipated dessert of the year…Strawberry Shortcake with Honeysuckle Ice Cream. Don’t miss out on this once a year treat!
This week’s Blue Sky Farms Salad featuring a variety of Mix of Baby Lettuces, tossed in a White Balsamic Vinaigrette and topped with fresh local Strawberries, Toasted Cornbread Crumble, Housemade Farm Cheese, Thinly Sliced Radish, and topped with Blackened NC Shrimp.
It’s your LAST CHANCE to enjoy NC Softshell Crabs. These tasty morsels will be served simply, Beer-Battered and Fried Crispy with a Charred Ramp Tartar Sauce. Don’t miss out on such a delicious treat!
Remember to enjoy our Duck Fat Mushrooms as a supplement to your meal…Wild Mushrooms sautéed in duck fat, finished with shallots and fresh thyme. These are sure to be a wonderful addition to any entrée.
Starting TOMORROW, from our friends at Locals Seafood we will have NC Mahi-Mahi. Call or come in to see how Chef will be preparing this sweet and flakey fish. 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, Heritage Farms 16oz Bone-In Pork Chops, and Outer Banks Scallops. With so many options to choose from you’ll have to dine with us more than once this week!
Leaving room for dessert has never been more of a priority! Our newest Spring dessert will soon be your new favorite… Strawberry Shortcake made with locally sourced Strawberries and freshly Whipped Cream, paired with Chef Tom’s homemade Honeysuckle Ice Cream, finished with a drizzle of Honeysuckle Syrup.
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.
Per the Governor’s announcement this past Friday, we will be lifting the mask requirement for guests within our restaurant. If you do not feel comfortable not wearing a mask, please feel free to continue to do so. With the capacity limits and social distancing lifted, we strongly recommend making a reservation. Please call us directly at 919-847-7319, visit our website or find us on Open Table.
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 on Vinnie’s Website.
