The Vine CLOSED 37533 Niles Blvd., (510) 792-0112. L W-Sat, D W-Sun, SunBr; $$. This casual neighborhood spot is situated amid a row of antique shops. It’s a great spot for lunch, with a back patio that is perfect on a warm day. I enjoyed a “grown-up grilled sammy” made with hefty slices of nitrate-free Niman Ranch ham, melted brie, and orange marmalade that came with a side of green salad and garlic fries plus curried ketchup. I can’t wait to return to try the sweet potato tater-tots, the cornmeal fried chicken, and the catfish.
