Vine Street Cafe

41 South Ferry Road, Shelter Island, NY 11964
Friday and Saturday, 5-10 p.m., Sunday–Monday, 5-9 p.m. Open seven days in season.

This stylish yet unpretentious favorite is well worth the ferry ride. Starters include local oysters and clams on the half shell, crispy calamari salad and grilled Portugese octopus. Meat eaters will find a variety of steaks, and other entrees usually include a pasta and inventively prepared seafood such as potato crusted halibut piccata, grilled miso salmon, or moules frites. The evolving menu reflects local seasonal fare. Monday is traditionally bouillabaisse night, and specials appear on other days. It's worth phoning to secure a table. A nice little food market sits behind the cafe. A food truck is launching at the end of June, serving lunch from 11:30 a.m.-4 p.m. every day, in the parking lot. Pulled pork and BBQ sandwiches as well as hot dogs and burgers.
