Chairman of the Board and Program Committee Member
Lisa Wisel is owner and manager of the VineRipe Grill and Catering at the Robert T. Lynch Municipal Golf Course in Chestnut Hill. Since taking over the restaurant in 2005, the VineRipe Grill has grown from a golfer’s hot dog stand to serving breakfast, lunch and dinner to non-golfing guests who can’t resist their 12-hour smoked pulled pork and brisket sandwiches. Planning catering events from small dinner gatherings to corporate parties over 500 people is what Lisa loves to do. Whether experiencing the cozy fireplace or the outdoor porch at the VineRipe Grill, or hiring them to come to you, their reputation for outstanding food and excellent service will not disappoint. Lisa has lived in Brookline for 32 years with her husband and four children.
