Old Vine Hits the Century Mark

It’s said that 90% fail in the first year. The numbers get even scary at the 5-year mark. 
So when Chef Mark McDonald Celebrated 10 years at the Old Vine Cafe in Costa Mesa, California on Sunday night it was quite an accomplishment.
Old Vine has always been a GrubTribe favorite and Chef Mark and his team do an excellent job. We’re thrilled for him.
It was an awesome party with wine and food and great friends. Here is a little highlight reel of the celebration.

One a Filipino Ceviche and the other an EGG RAVIOLO!!!
