Many memorable nights have been made by great food and great wine. That’s why Vin’tij is a special occasion staple for Destin area diners. With a focus on fresh, their menu changes seasonally but is always delicious and diverse. Regulars rave about everything from the cioppino to the lemon pound cake.
