Ambitious. Comforting. 100% local food, down to the salt. Vinland is forging a distinct Maine cuisine. We are the world's only 100% local food restaurant.<br /><br />"...the future of New England food...simultaneously surprising and comforting. It tasted of place and possibility" (Wall Street Journal, 5/23/14)<br /><br />"He trained everywhere you might expect, first cutting meat with Dario Cecchini in Italy, then staging at Fäviken in Sweden and Noma in Copenhagen." (New York Magazine's Grub Street, 6/19/13)<br /><br />"...a meal in which everything builds on itself to leave you perfectly satisfied, yet energized... 5/5 stars" (Portland Press Herald. 7/27/2014)<br /><br />"a serious star... the city's leading contemporary restaurant... This is the place Portland needed to crystalize its gastronomic ambitions once and for all" (Financial Times of London, 10/25/14)

Chef Michael Chiarello has returned to his culinary roots by creating seasonal farm-to-table Italian cuisine reflecting the bold flavors of Chiarello’s heritage in his signature style 1st made famous at Tra Vigne in the 90’s. An award winning chef/vintner & Food Network host, Chiarello celebrates his Italian roots and the Napa Valley with a menu echoing his long practice of using the finest locally/sustainably produced food. Located in Yountville, in the heart of the Napa Valley, Bottega’s extensive wine list represents hard-to-find favorites of the Valley and interesting Italian selections. Chiarello restored the integrity of an old 1800’s estate by uncovering beautiful hard wood floors, timber beams, old brick walls and windows. The inviting dining room is accented with reclaimed antiques, warm fabrics and eclectic light fixtures lending to the restaurant’s old world comfort.

Situated just off the 495 on Route 1, Luciano's is a delightful little piece of Italy right here in Massachusetts. Offering superb authentic Northern Italian cuisine and wines in a delightful and sophisticated setting. Luciano Canova, Patron Chef and Co-owner has made this sophisticated restaurant a shrine to good food and wine, Italian style. From the large and comfortable bar which features live music to the many sumptuous dining areas, each with their own character, Luciano <br />makes sure his diners enjoy a great meal whenever they visit.
