Vincent’s Corner Grocery began as a pop-up at Café du Pays in May of 2020. Café du Pays opened in summer of 2017 to critical acclaim, serving hearty French-Canadian and French-inspired food and thoughtfully curated drinks menus. Their professional yet casual, informed and unimposing style of service contributed to their recognition as Best New Restaurant of 2017 in Boston Magazine and by the editors of Eater Boston. They grew as a restaurant retaining much of their original staff until their COVID-19 related closure on March 15th of 2020. They reopened weeks later as Vincent’s, offering fresh vegetables, pantry staples, and prepared foods for their neighbors. Those offerings have now evolved into a small but thoughtful bottle shop with natural wine, craft beer, and bottled cocktails in addition to a takeout and delivery-oriented kitchen operation serving casual and delicious lunch and brunch as well as a more refined dinner menu. In the coming months they will resume on site patio dining and the concept of Vincent’s will take over the space permanently.
