Proprietors Melissa and Michael Ninos opened V Restaurant and Bar in 2004 as a welcome addition to the Murphys dining scene. Immensely popular since its inception, V offers the most upscale dining experience in Calaveras County.

In 2011 the Ninos’ opened the V Bistro & Bar to offer a casual European style eatery. Both are adjacent to the Victorian Inn, owned by the Ninos’ since 2001.

Menus and cuisine created by Chef Beverly Torrez-Petty, Chef Thomas Costa, and Chef Jason Gill.
