Erin Brown takes on Vines at 139

ONE of Grafton’s most trusted chefs has hit two birds with one stone. Erin Brown has opened a restaurant on the north side of the river and expanded her business.

The former owner of the Courtyard Cafe and the current owner of Erin’s Restaurant at the Grafton Golf Course is now the owner of Vines at 139.

“After losing my spot at the Courtyard, I always wanted to come back and the opportunity presented was far too good to refuse. I will just have to wait it out and see if I can handle both restaurants,” she said.

Erin will be based at Vines but will be crossing between the two establishments.

“I have kept all of my staff and all of the staff from Vines. We have seven chefs and each of them will know both menus like the backs of their hands. The menus will be different, but will still reflect my cooking style and what people have come to know me for.”

Erin started in the food game in 1980 and says that her passion for the industry is still strong.
