“We are passionate about hospitality and keep things simple yet soulful.”
Guests will be treated to an atmosphere that is warm and inviting the moment they step into Vine & Olive. Owner Naomi Boutz, who opened the space in November of 2017, continues to take great pride in the eatery she has created in the heart of Coeur d’Alene’s Riverstone.
“Our clientele is as diverse as the wine list,” says Naomi. “We get lots of local business lunches and ladies meeting their friends. With Regal Cinemas just half a block away, we get a lot of movie goers who stop in for a drink and a small plate before or after a movie.”
This past August, Chef Josh Pebbles joined the Vine & Olive team. Raised in the San Francisco area, his enthusiasm for the culinary world took him to the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley, fueling his passion even more. He trained in Italy, where he studied the craft of hand rolling pastas, Italian cuisine, whole animal butchery and salumi in a family owned restaurant (which has been passed down generation to generation for more than 300 years!).
“We are already loving his Italian influence on the menu!” smiles Naomi. “His philosophy behind cooking is to highlight the best local ingredients with classic European influences while infusing new-age techniques to create a memorable experience for each guest who walks through the door to share together.”
From the staples of Escargot prepared in a classic French execution, to the Pork Shank with Creamy Polenta and the Acorn Squash Frites, the menu never disappoints. In addition, menu offerings change every few months for seasonality.
The eatery is open daily for lunch starting at 11:30am, with the dinner menu starting at 4pm. If you’re looking for an intimate space for that special celebration, Naomi welcomes you to reserve their private dining room, which seats 12. If you have a larger party in mind, they can accommodate groups up to 50 in their dining room.
“My team is passionate about hospitality,” Naomi says proudly. “They inspire me every day with their commitment to customers and Vine & Olive.”
