It’s always exciting to find something a bit different to do in New York City. How about an eating experience that is almost sure to please, but is not your ‘run-of-the-mill’ latest fad cuisine? Check out Casellula Cheese and Wine Café, and you might just get that unique experience.
Casellula is located at 401 West 52nd Street, so if you happen to be a guest at Shimmie Horn’s Washington Jefferson Hotel on West 51st Street, you are only a short stroll to this fab café which specializes in handmade and farmstead cheeses, but has a lot more to offer.
This place is serious about cheese, with over 40 varieties from around the world, from the most obscure; to the mildest and strongest; from fresh to washed to blue. Each cheese is served with its own particularly well-suited condiment, and there is a wide variety of wines and beers to pair off with the cheese you choose.
There is also a wonderful food menu which includes a list of eight kinds of meats to pick from; salads; elegant sandwiches like goose breast Reuben; and assorted other surprises such as mac and cheese and rabbit and Chanterelle mushroom pie.
Note that Casellula does not take reservations, and does not require any special attire to dine there. So go on over and discover something new in the neighborhood.
