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')
Best Brunch in the Land!
Stephanie came to us from the wild farmlands of Western Maryland (like, way, way, way out there) by way of DC. When we found her, she was busy winning awards in DC, but we were able to bribe her back to Frederick with the biggest kitchen (ever) and the free-rein to develop an amazing menu of elevated, rootsy comfort food. As Executive Chef of Vintage, she's been nominated twice as the Best Chef in Maryland at the Restaurant Association of Maryland awards!
AMANDA (Beverage Manager)
The backbone of our front of house team, Amanda has almost two decades of industry experience. She spent years as the wine representative for small production vineyards and keeps our wine lists fresh and unique. Nowadays you'll find her plying her trade at our bar almost every night of the week, and you'll be glad you did. Her creative cocktails keep Vintage first timers and regulars alike coming back for more!
(Need proof? Just try one of her seasonal tap cocktail flights!)
