Vault & Cellar
Chef Kari and team bring you local and regional foods, an immense bourbon focused whiskey list, regional wines and beers, and handcrafted cocktails. Our goal is to create fun, creative seasonal offerings in an elegant but approachable environment. We look forward to having you in for dinner or drinks soon!
Vault & Cellar is a New Appalachian restaurant and bourbon bar, that balances the elegance and sophistication of a fine-dining experience, while retaining the whimsy and approachability of a food truck. The menu changes frequently, with such seasonal items as duck, rabbit, and quail, but with a more modern take on them.
GREAT FOOD, GREAT DRINK, GREAT SERVICE
Great food - food prepared by skilled hands, from quality suppliers.
Great drink - a beverage program prepared with thought and intent.
Great service - It isn't called hospitality for nothing. Guests will be made to feel as that - guests - enjoying excellent food and beverages provided by a service staff that cares.
Chef Kari grew up in Front Royal, Virginia, just a 10 minute drive from Vault & Cellar. After cooking at multiple Michelin-starred restaurants in Washington DC, and under a James Beard award winning chef in New Orleans, she returned back to her hometown to start a family. After joining a well known local restaurant before COVID-19, she managed to help them not only survive, but thrive through a pandemic. Now, her and her team have crafted an experience not often seen in the Shenandoah Valley.
