Vinland is the first restaurant in the United States to serve 100% local, organic food. We are also gluten-free and paleo-friendly. Our original cocktails feature house-made vermouths and infusions, and our wine list presents certified biodynamic, wild-fermented, and unfiltered wines.

Drawing from indigenous food traditions along with those of the Acadians, New Englanders, and other peoples of the North Atlantic, the cuisine of Vinland is an expression of our place and history. Yet the mission is as much about ecology, building the local economy, and teaching good nutrition as it is about great food. We see these four elements as inextricable and mutually reinforcing.
