Our Story

In 2009, Dr. Dean Yimoyines and his family chose their hometown of Middlebury, Connecticut as the place to build a unique furniture showroom & gift shoppe. As Middlebury Consignment quickly became an all-day destination, they realized their customers would need a place to eat. Starting from a simple cafe, this eatery has taken a leap towards becoming one of Connecticut’s best restaurants: Vyne.

With the opening of Vyne, the Yimoyines family is returning to their roots. Dr. Yimoyines’ father, Constantine, owned the iconic Les Shaw’s – today fondly remembered throughout greater New Haven.

With a classic yet inventive menu, Vyne’s recipes are receiving accolades and winning fans. Visit us, and taste for yourself!
