Happy Spring friends. Rest assured we want to open as soon as possible, as we patiently await the downward curve.

Meanwhile we are researching new ideas and will be bring back some old classics from Vinings Bistro. We’re sure take-out will be our first option to get the juices going again as we come out of hibernation.

We miss you and look forward to greeting you all once again as soon as it’s safe. Stay in touch as we’ll update this website as we get close to our start date.

About Us

Steve and Lynda Vining opened ‘The Bistro’ in 1991 in the tiny upstairs spot at 593 Main street in Chatham with the idea of establishing a friendly neighborhood bistro where locals and visitors alike could come together each season and celebrate all the great food, drink and camaraderie that our quaint little fishing town has to offer.

After twenty-three years and several expansions, we finally moved downstairs to an all-new location with roomy patio and the Cape’s only full service raw bar, specialty cocktail, Martinis and craft beer lounge.

Steve had to say good bye to Lynda in 2013 and continues to carry on the tradition of the Bistro with Lynda’s presents always felt and reflected in the signature portrait the hangs over our dining room.

Come check us out and stake your claim to a spot at one of our bars or reserve a table and start the celebration.

The Bistro on Main and Chatham Raw Bar is the latest incarnation of local restaurateur, Steve Vining, located in the heart of Chatham’s Main Street. Since 1991, we continue to bring together fresh food, fine wine, and good friends.

Whether you choose to sit in our dining room, outdoor patio, or nautical-inspired Raw Bar, we offer a quality selection of premium spirits, wines, beers and local food prepared and beautifully presented by our friendly, veteran staff in a relaxed and intimate setting.

Bistro Owner, Stephen Vining, invites you to taste his eclectic menu with influences from around the globe.
