My boyfriend and I happened to be staying at the Westin, which is just around the corner. We don’t drink, so I asked the bar for a mock tail- the guy went all out on us, it was like a delightful health concoction, the salad...More

We had the 19-course tasting menu with wine pairings. That adds up to one course for each item of Vinland’s mission statement. Chef David Levi and crew are committed to an inspiring and exacting vision: 100% local food (within 200 miles?). That hardly seems unique...More

The food here is VERY, VERY GOOD. But, I must add, with almost all places that serve good food it is also rather expensive. I could have eaten more of the food here, but my wallet wouldn't allow me to. The gentlemen that run this...More

I've eaten at a number of Michelin starred restaurants up and down the East Coast, and Vinland can hold its own with any of them. The food is outstanding from start to finish. I absolutely recommend the five course option. Cocktails and wine offerings are...More

Only went here because of Fore Street's ridiculous reservation/walk-in policy, but so glad we did. The five course tasting menu with wine pairing is a must. Highlights were lobster, lamb, semifreddo. Sitting at the bar and chatting with the team makes it even more enjoyable....More

Comfortable. Delicious. Nourishing. Vinland is the first restaurant in the United States to serve 100% local, organic food. The perfect place to make an ordinary night special. Local food for local people.
