As a chef I can truly appreciate the skill and creativity that goes into this food. True farm to table using only local foods in innovative ways. Get the tasting menu with wine pairings.

I had high hopes for the concept but it fell flat for me. Especially with the main course. Generally with a main there's a highlighted item & accouterments to promote it. The meal I had seemed to all mash together. I did like all of...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.
