About Field & Vine
Field & Vine is a new concept from Company Picnic. After two years popping up, vending at breweries and farmers markets, and catering private events, we are happy to have a permanent home in the very neighborhood we live in, Union Square, Somerville.
Field & Vine is very much a neighborhood restaurant. We will hold community events and workshops, but mainly aim to be a place that is familiar and comfortable. Our mission is to create a dining experience committed to the natural world. All of our ingredients are sustainably sourced and our menu evolves with the changing of seasons. We make everything by hand from scratch and take a simple approach to our food, allowing the ingredients to shine. All of our wines are chosen to mimic that same philosophy, they are created by producers who are dedicated to allowing their land to fully express itself through the grapes.
We already have the menus written and the recipes tested. We've secured the location and have all the permits and licenses in place. We have our playlists done :) We have buckets of pickles pickling and reserves of preserves. We have an excellent design team that will be building custom furniture for us and renovating the space to create an aesthetic that compliments our philosophy on eating, drinking and dining.
As we said in the video, the funds we raise here on kickstarter will allow us to...
- Stock the pantry - We have in place a great roster of local farms, meat and fish purveyors and foragers. With your help we can bring in the best products for our opening inventory.
- Put wine and beer in the fridge - We are committed to serving local craft beers and wines that let nature sing. With your help we can put the best we can find in the fridge and on the shelves for you to enjoy with us.
- More zen - Though we have tried to think of everything, the unforeseeable most often happens. The funds you so generously donate will take some worries off of our shoulders and help us breath deep and stay focused if lightning strikes or the ceiling comes down.
We're so excited...
Andrew and I are so excited to have you in, feed you and take care of you. We've worked so hard to get to this point and can't wait to celebrate with you. So please, tell your friends and your family and your friend's friends and your family's friends and your co-workers and your co-worker's family and your co-worker's family's friends and your mail man- you get it! We'll take all the help we can!
Thanks so much from the bottom of our hearts, we can't wait to see you at Field & Vine. xo

Risks and challenges
Having both been in the restaurant business for most of our lives, we understand the risks and challenges associated with opening and running a restaurant-thanks Mom and Dad! With that being said, we believe we have to tools in place if something should happen.
We believe in what we are going to do. We believe in working hard and having high standards. We believe in making everyone feel welcome and taken care of. We believe in our community and the amazing purveyors we use. We believe in honoring the seasons and serving with grace.
We hope you can believe in us.
