The Vine Cottage
Exposed wooden rafters and cobblestone walls create the rustic ambiance that The Vine Cottage’s name promises, but the menu adds dimension to this theme with a contemporary take on Italian and American staples. The chefs value sustainably produced meals, so they seek out seasonal, organic, and locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. These ingredients lend vibrant flavors to the menu’s flatbread-style pizzas, hearty pasta dishes, and grilled steaks. Housemade duck leg confit and remoulade also help to create a dining experience that is homey yet refined, much like the artwork-laden refrigerator in Monet’s childhood home.
