About this Place

RG Books and Vinos have the same owner and are connected, but the lounge and restaurant have different vibes.

RG Books specializes in Martinis including the Boodles Gimlet which one New York Times writer proclaimed the Best Martini in the U.S. The bar also has a very large selection of wines by the glass that change weekly and very large wine by the bottle selection as well.

Vino's Italian Ristorante specializes in all homemade classic Italian favorites along with fresh seafood, and a variety of steaks. Chef specials change nightly and span various cuisine styles. Also gluten-free, vegetarian, and whole wheat selections are available.

The same menu is available in both the Lounge and Restaurant
