Casellula Cheese & Wine Cafe
Cheesemongers can sample more than 40 hand-made cheeses daily from around the world at this small Hell’s Kitchen wine bar. From a stinky blue to the smooth Brie, Casellula pairs each selection with proper condiments at its polished wood bar. The shop hosts guided cheese tastings on a regular basis, where sommelier pairs beer, cider, and sips of wine to compliment a composed flight of cheeses. Mainstay menu items include the pig’s ass sandwich with Fiscalini cheddar, pickles, and chipotle aioli, and a tapioca goat’s milk pudding with candied fennel.
The small space can only seat about 30 people so come early to avoid the wait.
