Philosophy: They work with each client to create a customized menu that suits their style, budget, and taste. Vinwood’s menus are based on each unique season that we experience in New England—and highlight local products, produce, and seafood year-round!
Trend: An increase in the importance of a playful and unique presentation, particularly during the cocktail hour. Fun tasting vessels and platters decorated with fresh herbs and petite florals. Small-plate stations also continue to be popular service options. Late-night snacks—in the form of fun stations like a taco or slider bar, or passed treats like warm cookies and milk shooters, mini milk shakes, pulled BBQ pork sliders, or sweet potato fries.
What’s New: Every season signature cocktails seem to become more and more creative and popular. Vinwood has a terrific specialty cocktail menu that has been freshened with their relationship with Powell and Mahoney and their unique and fun mixers.
