It’s been over a year since I first posted about Vintage Year but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been back multiple times since that first visit last year. Vintage Year has held the honor as one of the Capitol’s favorite dining experiences for decades with over a quarter century of stories to be told. We have served several southern governors, noted attorney Johnny Cochran and John F. Kennedy Jr., to name just a few. Over the years, the restaurant has changed ownership but the focus remains the same. This year the menu is different and I couldn’t resist giving you guys another peak at all the goodies on the new menu!
I have to admit, I’m one for specials so anytime there is a special you can bet I’m going to get the special! The night we went there were several specials one of which involved lobster so that was my choice for the night, Lobster Risotto! Last year I had Seafood Risotto which was fabulous but adding lobster was made this dish my weakness for the night!
One of the new additions to the menu was lamb and I have a love, hate relationship with lamb. I’ve had some really great lamb and some not so great. I know Vintage Year never disappoints when it comes to taste so I wasn’t worried when ordering the lamb there. It definitely did not disappoint! There was a great char on the outside while the inside was juicy and tender. It was my favorite dish of the night!
Vintage Year has been an important part of the fabric of Montgomery’s social scene since 1984. What began as Montgomery’s only specialty wine shop soon became a destination for gourmet lunches to accompany the shop’s extensive selection of wines. Soon dinner entrees were added and the rest is history.
