Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Vintage Restaurant is located below a Tuscan portico at The Inn at Willow Grove, in Orange County, Virginia. Set at the garden level of the historic Manor House, the kitchen and dining areas have been transformed into a stillroom of contemporary cookery. Vintage specializes in farm-to-table cuisine using seasonal, regional ingredients. Expect dishes like Orange County Roasters coffee-crusted beef tenderloin with rosemary mustard, potato gratin, baby carrots and a demi glace, as well as lobster-stuffed chicken breast with lettuce purée, roasted tomato and baby lima vinaigrette.
It’s a fitting setting for a country restaurant. About 90 miles from Washington, D.C., 35 from Fredericksburg and 30 from Charlottesville, Orange is known for being the birthplace of Edna Lewis, the grand dame of country cooking.
