We eat here frequently, and enjoy the recommendations of Charlie, the sommelier. The food is always wonderful, and The Cellar is a special place for wine and charcuterie!

Very nice ambiance. A decent wine list. I opted for the eggplant and tomato entree and enjoyed it. I asked for mild and they got it right: spicy enough for an edge but not a trip to reflux city. My companion, who is from Bangladesh,...More

I recommend Tandoori chicken from the oven, a side of Saag (spinach), a side of Raita (cucumber and yogurt salad), papadam (crispy thin bread), and rice. This meal is both very healthy and filling and is not at all spicy.
