In a century-old garage, 2 Vine frequently tops the list of Rochestarians' favorite restaurants. A vine-covered arbor leads into a two-room space with booth and table seating, soft lighting, and wood-beamed ceilings. The front room has huge windows and a long polished-wood bar. Mussels are steamed, served in white wine with shallots and black peppercorns, and accompanied by a side of frites; lamb chops are grilled and paired with Swiss chard in a lemon-thyme sauce. Most of the ingredients are local and organic.
