Work up an appetite touring the Central Virginia beer and wine trails, then kill it with culinary kindness at Vintage Restaurant. This posh restaurant is a warren of cozy dining spaces. Museum-quality stained-glass windows and a brick fireplace in the central dining room tickle the senses, readying them for playful presentations, such as a “Philly cheesesteak” salad with local mushrooms. Vintage delivers menus of modernized classics set among paintings and sculpture from present-day artists. Farm-raised rainbow trout from pristine mountain streams, ramps, morels and Albemarle summer peach dishes are must-trys, while crawfish-stuffed avocado is a salute to owner Charlene Scibal’s New Orleans roots. Well-crafted furnishings and patio dining encourage lingering over cocktails or dessert in the elegant but informal epicurean setting.
