Located next to its sibling, the something-for-everyone Vintage 51 (the owners also have the more refined Vintage 50 in Leesburg), this seafood-focused restaurant is helmed by Christopher Pinchin, who has worked at Willow, Restaurant Eve, and Hook. His eclectic menu features such upscale bar food as Buffalo-fried shrimp as well as very French escargots in puff pastry.
