Vinsetta Garage keeps history, adds new flavor

By Erin Kaled, Editor

Opened at the end of 2011, the restaurant Vinsetta Garage draws people in because of its historic background. While the garage unlocked its doors over 91 years ago, the place now has a new purpose: to serve food like burgers, mac & cheese, noodle bowls and coal-fired pies.

From the light seeping through the large windows to the friendly staff and homestyle atmosphere, Vinsetta Garage is a hole in the wall, underrated restaurant. For somebody looking for a good burger and fries, Vinsetta is where to find it. Located just outside downtown Royal Oak, the up and coming place is attracting every type of crowd, especially teens and young adults. Open from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m., the only downside about this place is the amount of space and the price. Although it’s probably not the best place to hold a large party or get together, the restaurant is very good. Vinsetta Garage isn’t the cheapest place to eat, but it’s definitely worth it.

Remodeled by Curt Catallo, who also owns Clarkston Union Bar & Kitchen and the Union Woodshop in Downtown Clarkston, he envisioned a historic landmark being maintained and preserved.

For somebody who’s in the market for a good burger or mac and cheese, look no further than Vinsetta Garage on Woodward Ave.
