MBJ Vintage Year

Vintage Year has been an establishment of good eats in the capital city for decades. In late 2015, current owner Jud Blount brought the restaurant back, and with a nod to its past and a fresh take on its future, he’s made it better than ever.

CHEF: ERIC RIVERA

FOUNDED: 1984 AND RE-OPENED IN 2016

NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES: 30

HISTORY: Vintage Year has been an important part of the fabric of Montgomery’s social scene since 1984. It started as Montgomery’s only specialty wine shop, and soon became a destination for gourmet lunches. Then, it opened for dinner, and the rest is history. The restaurant has a lot of stories. It has served several Southern governors and other notable figures like attorney Johnny Cochran and John F. Kennedy Jr., to name a few. Over the years, the restaurant has changed ownership but the focus on giving our guests an amazing meal and amazing experience remains the same.

AWARDS & HONORS: General manager Chase Brown was honored by RSVP magazine by being included on “The List” for Young Professionals, and bartender Derek Russell recently won “Bartender of the Year” from the Alabama Restaurant and Hospitality Association.

WHAT DO YOU WANT DINERS TO GET OUT OF THE VINTAGE YEAR DINING EXPERIENCE? We try to consistently provide the best experience in Montgomery through our personalized service and quality approach.

WHAT SETS VINTAGE YEAR APART? Our ambiance and beautiful food presentation along with excellent service.

WHAT’S YOUR MOST POPULAR DISH? Seared Gulf snapper with ricotta gnocchi, eggplant caponata, arugula and Romesco sauce.

WHAT IS THE RESTAURANT’S “SECRET TO SUCCESS”? The constant training of our employees and the attention to detail we provide every diner on every visit.

WHAT’S ON THE HORIZON FOR VINTAGE YEAR IN 2017? Be on the lookout for more events, especially some with an arts focus; we’re big advocates for the arts in our community.
