On a couple of visits to the Vine, I encountered dishes listed on the menu that were not available. In this case, the disorganization was more than understandable: When I spoke with manager Ali Moshen on the phone, he said that his mother had passed away recently after an extended stay in the hospital, during which time the operation of the family-run restaurant had been hectic.

Truly, aside from those missing dishes, if the restaurant's operations suffered during this unfortunate time, I didn't notice it. And if there is a neighborhood that can shepherd a new eating establishment through such a trying time, it is this vibrant, welcoming stretch of South Grand.
