Vinegar Hill House information
Tucked into out-of-the-way Vinegar Hill, this homey spot is decked out in a charming array of thrift-store bric-a-brac. But don't let the low-key decor fool you: chef Brian Leth cooks up an evolving menu that is bracingly fresh and unfussy, such as sea trout with wild mushrooms, pork chop with grits and romesco sauce or corn risotto with eggplant.
There is a wine list stocked with French vintages (from $38 per bottle), as well as retro cocktails. This place is popular, especially in summer when the back patio is open. Show up near opening time if you don't want to wait.
