The Cellar

We decided to try a newish wine bar in Palm Desert. The Cellar on El Paso was an unexpected pleasure. With brick walls, arches and a warm dark wood floor, it is comfortable, cozy, and charming.

There is a nice selection of wines by the glass, or just a 2 oz. taste. If you choose something from the selection of bottles, which are reasonably priced, add a $10 corkage fee, and drink something from your favorite winery.

We arrived at 6:30, and an hour later, we decided to make appetizers our dinner. I ordered a fabulous flatbread with prosciutto, asiago, fig jam and green onions.

Brad tried the meatloaf sliders with onions and BBQ sauce. They were fabulous. Either dish was more than enough for two!

Brad was quite happy! We both had a very fun evening!

Did I mention they have a chocolate sampler plate? or a collection of artisan cheeses and breads? We will just have to come back!

This looks like a GREAT spot for a GTG!
