A new restaurant and wine bar in Coeur d’Alene is now serving Sunday brunch.

Service is 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Sundays.

Proprietor Naomi Boutz called the menu “refreshing and exciting in typical Chef Paul standard.”

Paul Mason is the chef at Vine and Olive, which opened Nov. 20 in the Riverstone development in Coeur d’Alene. The focus is Pacific Northwest wine and European-inspired small plates with seasonal ingredients.

The new Sunday brunch features bagel and lox with capers and herbed cream cheese for $14, shrimp and grits for $18, French toast with maple syrup and berry compote for $10, and shaksuka with spicy roasted tomatoes, poached eggs, sourdough and goat cheese for $12.

Look, also, for a breakfast burrito with steak and black bean salsa for $13, braised short-rib hash with crispy potatoes and fried eggs for $12, a tabbouleh bowl with hummus and naan for $11, and a seasonal scone from the North Idaho Bagel Co. served with berry jam and whipped butter $7.

On the “liquid brunch” menu, there’s a strawberry-mango mimosa, fresh-squeezed grapefruit mimosa and V&O bloody mary made with sake and house-pickled vegetables.

Gluten-free and vegetarian items are denoted on the menu. Reservations are encouraged by calling the restaurant, Boutz said, but they’re not required.

Vine and Olive Eatery and Wine Bar is at 2037 N. Main St. in Coeur d’Alene. Call (208) 758-7770. On the web:
