Casellula review image

Casellula is a “cheese and wine cafe”. Note the order of those words. If you’re looking for a wine bar with hundreds of varietals and rare finds, look elsewhere. Casellula is about the cheese first, and everything else second. So if what you’re after is a laid back spot where you can get a raw milk goat cheese from Italy, this is your joint.

This is a cozy little place in Hells Kitchen, and it's run by some serious fromage lovers. The owner was once the head cheese guru at The Modern, something we discovered when we saw a congratulatory letter from Danny Meyer hanging in the bathroom. The cheese selection is vast and incredibly tasty, and each variety is priced at $10. Don’t do dairy? Casellula is also good for a glass of wine and a casual meal. There are some nice bites on the menu—specifically the Pig’s Ass Sandwich—but only the cheeses and desserts reach mind-blowing levels. Don’t miss the chocolate cake. It’s absolutely ridiculous.

Bocca di Bacco review image

Midtown wine bars are pretty high up there on the list of places you won't find us hanging out. Read away for the many reasons why. But thanks to good food and a good crowd, Bocca Di Bacco is the exception.

The Marshal review image

The Marshal is a perfect neighborhood restaurant in Hell's Kitchen with dedicated regulars and an appreciation for New York.

Ardesia review image

Ardesia is first and foremost a wine bar, and a good one at that. The food is decent, but it’s secondary to what they do best, which is selecting excellent “mineral-driven” wines from all over the world.
