Casellula Cheese & Wine Cafe

We found a new-ish gem thatís convenient for pre- or post-theater dining. Casellula Cheese & Wine Cafe is perfect for nibbling, dining, or spending some leisurely time at the bar, trying wines and cheeses.

Itís a cute little spot on 52nd near Ninth. Only a few tables.

Super-fresh tomatoes and peppers. Great cheese. Good shrimp. Avocado was a little brown.
