Business Profile
Vintage Restaurant

Eclectic, upscale, peasant food.
Vintage Restaurant is proud to be primitive. If anyone can spin grass and berries into a platter of delights, Jeff Keys can. Along with wife Sheila, the couple produces a unique menu that changes daily with the whims of the owner/chef, the available produce and the freshness of the locally farmed seafood, meat and poultry.
“Vintage is not a machine-driven restaurant,” he says. “We don’t have the fanciest equipment. We have very little space. We are hand-made in every sense of the word.”
Menu highlights include Delights of the Naked Stranger, rock shrimp tamales, crispy skin roast duckling, pecan crusted chicken and spicy Cajun oysters.
Housed in the restored historic Burt Cross cabin, Jeff and Sheila combined the best of their popular previous restaurants–Soupcón and Bellevue Bistro–to create Vintage.
The environment reflects his sensitivity to elegance and comfort. A rustic and warm interior gives the visitor a cozy feeling as they await their meal.
Jeff says his creativity is guided by the ingredients he uses.
“The natural beauty and intrinsic value of the ingredients tell us what to do,” he says.
Those who want to attempt to replicate their experience at home, or at least do so vicariously, will enjoy perusing the recently published Vintage Restaurant: Handcrafted Cuisine from a Sun Valley Favorite.
