Vinegar Hill House
Located on the ground floor of a brick row building, the interior of this popular spot is styled as an easygoing bistro, with simple wood floors and seating, soft lighting, a copper bar, and plant-filled wall nooks. Dishes like beet risotto and wild boar shank served with grits, as well as sides like brussels sprouts with grainy mustard and hazelnuts, exemplify the dressed-up, earthy approach of the kitchen. The wine list includes American and small-production wineries, many of them accessibly priced. Diners are seated on a walk-in basis, with reservations available on select nights for parties of four or more.
