Our little town has a new restaurant and art gallery; Earth & Vine.
I love this place.
Painted aubergine and sage (aka: purple and green), and adorned with local art and a fantastic menu, Earth & Vine is Baker City’s most sophisticated eatery. Mary, the proprietor, has made an oasis in the middle of downtown Baker City with ambiance that would satisfy a New Yorker and a menu that would impress Zagat.
In the past two months, I’ve dined on a $10 dollar turkey sandwich (that was worth every penny), hand-made dim-sum (oooohhhh delish!), and fondue for two (pictured above). The fondue is very decadent. Three cheeses, spiked with a crisp Pinot Grigio, set atop a blue flame to keep the gooey concoction warm.
They also offer a chocolate fondue. I haven’t tried any of their desserts yet (because I’ve always been too full) but have heard good things. I plan on making this little restaurant a regular haunt every Tuesday afternoon until I’ve tried the entire menu.
If you haven’t made it down there yet, you’re really missing out. They’re open at noon every Mon-Sat, closed on Sundays.
