LISSA (GM / 'Peppa')
Once upon a time, Lissa left a cush gig in the corporate restaurant world to live a dream life in the South Pacific. After a stint as a farmhand in Perth, where she did time as a tackling dummy for some unruly sheep that were really into Aussie-rules football (true story), we hear she lived a life of luxury. Supposedly, there were cruise ships in Sydney Harbor, travel through the gorgeousness-that-is-New-Zealand, and long walks on the beaches of Bali.
Yeah....we have no idea why she came back, either ;)
Lucky for us, she did, and we brought her up to Vintage to keep us on track with all of the important stuff. You can find her all day, every day, running our merry circus!
STEPHANIE (Chef / 'Salt')
Chef Stephanie Wilson and her kitchen are Vintage's heart and soul. Growing up on her family farm in Washington County, Chef Stephanie was imbued with a deep connection to down home cooking by her mother and two grandmothers. With local, fresh ingredients as the foundation of all the deeply thoughtful cooking on her menu, she makes dining at Vintage feel like coming home.
A multiple-time Chef of the Year finalist from the Restaurant Association of Maryland, noted as one of Sass Magazine's Top Female Chefs, and recognized for Best Brunch in publications like The Washington Blade, Washington Post Express, and OpenTable, we think you'll appreciate the marriage of expertise, soul, and community she brings to the Vintage table.
