Located in the historic center of downtown Lexington, Massachusetts, Vine Brook Tavern is a contemporary American tavern offering classic, refined American fare, warm hospitality, and outstanding service. A creation of Marcus Palmer and Brian Lesser, Vine Brook Tavern is comfortable, affordable, and in no way ordinary.
Along with its unique cuisine, Vine Brook Tavern offers an extensive selection of wines, craft micro-brews, and cocktails. Featuring over 20 mostly American wines, Vine Brook Tavern serves these wines through its custom cruvinet system at proper temperatures. With twelve beers on tap and twelve more in bottles and cans, Vine Brook Tavern features a wide selection of craft micro-brews as well as quality production lagers and ales. Of course, the spirits mustn’t be left out, which is why Palmer has enlisted some of Boston’s finest mixologists to create a fantastic mix of modern and contemporary cocktails.
Designed by Palmer and Annie Rubin of Annika Designs, the restaurant offers a warm and inviting dining environment spread over two floors and several intimate rooms. The building at 20 Waltham Street housed the second post office in Lexington in the early 1800’s; the restaurant’s outdoor paint colors were carefully chosen, as they are reminiscent of that time.
With its large bar and several TVs, the lively lounge on the first floor is a perfect after work meeting place. The second floor has four dining rooms, offering a variety of semi-private dining options. There are also family-friendly, extra-large booths and several custom Chef’s tables for larger parties.
Classic American cuisine and a blend of farm-to-table produce from local Lexington farms is the theme for Executive Chef Chris Frothingham’s menu. Vine Brook’s exceptional ingredients offered at a reasonable cost by an informed and hospitable staff make it Lexington’s best dining destination.
