Happy Saturday Wine and Cheese Edition

Mr. T and I were in Hell’s kitchen Thursday night to attend a listening party for friend’s new album. Casellula was only a couple blocks away so we stopped in for some wine and cheese.

I ordered a glass of Chardonnay and the Ricotta Crostini.

The Ricotta Crostini was absolutely delicious. The cheese was drizzled with sweet Orange Blossom Honey and then topped with hazelnuts and a little bit of lemon. How something so simple can be so delicious is beyond me. This was an excellent little appetizer to enjoy with some wine and I plan to recreate this myself at home.

Unfortunately the Crostini was the best part of Casellula for me. I thought the space was cozy but the wines by the glass were incredibly overpriced and the pour we got was definitely a little bit small. I think we'll stick with our downtown favorite Otto for our wine and cheese moments. Hope everyone is having a great Saturday!
