Night out with the girls? Night out with the guys and looking for girls? Date night? Then why not take a walk over to Cellar 58 for some romantic lighting, tasty wines and small plates. The best part? Affordable prices too.
Cellar 58 is a lovely wine bar that has been around for less than a year. Wine enthusiasts will have a ball here since they have a selection of over 150 wines from all over the world. Craving a merlot from Bulgaria, maybe a viognier from South Africa? You’ll find it here, and prices by the glass start at just $6. It’s great for all budgets. After sampling a red, white and sparkling white, I was pleasantly pleased with the quality of all the wines, especially when I got the check.
Stay away from their pizza. Think Ellio’s. However, their cheeses are quite delicious and are accompanied with delicious marmalade type sides to pair with them. The triple cream cheese melts in your mouth, as it should. Their blue is fantastic, not too strong and so flavorful still. The brie? Hi, I love you, want to spend the night with me? Cheese plates start at 3 for $9.90 and a fantastic assortment of 9 costs an extremely reasonable $23.90. The presentation is so much fun too.
If you are a fan of desserts, don’t leave without trying their napoleon. It’s messy, not too sweet and fantastic. So fantastic, we ordered a second one for the table. The flaky puff pastry has light whipped pastry cream oozing out from all sides and had me wondering if there was a way I could lick the plate clean without looking too trashy. Sadly, I didn’t find a way.
