Y'all, can we just talk about food for a sec here? Although I don't think of myself as a "foodie," I relish the chance to eat my way through every vacation, and I love restaurants of all varieties. I do street food and I do fine dining: basically, I love to eat. So, we recently had a chance to go to the most amazing restaurant, and I just have to brag a bit here because I happen to know the Executive Chef, Marc Taylor. This was our first time there, and I was so impressed I have to share! If you are ever in the tidewater area, please do not miss the chance to eat at Fire and Vine.
Among the appetizers we got were the flatbreads, which were delish! But please do not leave without trying the Truffled Gnocchi & Cheese, which was so good it should be illegal. The charcuterie platter is also super impressive and features meats cured in-house.
Our main courses included (clockwise from top left) Stuffed Quail, the 16 oz Ribeye, Shrimp & Grits, and the 72 Hours Short Ribs.
Everything was out-of-control delicious! In addition to exquisite food, Fire & Vine has a huge wine selection, amazing service (thanks, Joey!) and great ambiance. To be clear: this is not a sponsored post! I just loved this restaurant and I think everyone in the world should go. Let me know when you do, and say hi to Marc from me!
