The meal begins with a classic Swiss cheese fondue. For their pierrade entrees, patrons can choose up to four of several protein options—such as calamari, shrimp, pork loin, chicken, italian sausage, and pheasant sausage—all of which sizzle atop a hot stone table to the diner’s desired doneness. For dessert, milk or dark chocolate fondue is available, served with seasonal fruit, marshmallows, and cookies.<p>

The Wine Cellar

A common scene at The Wine Cellar: servers toting percolating pots of gruyere, emmental, or gorgonzola to diners, who in turn dip skewers of bread or potatoes into the steel cauldrons of melted cheese. This celebrated practice of submerging things into other, more scalding things isn't the only European tradition The Wine Cellar draws upon; its menu culls culinary influences from around the great continent, including France and Switzerland. In addition to sizzling up pots of oil or vegetable broth in which guests can cook their own beef, tiger shrimp, or rabbit, the chefs forge a spread of signature dishes, including tartifletes and roblochonnades, and pierrades made at the table in front of guests. They accompany this transatlantic fare with an international wine list, which sports hearty reds and delicate whites from vineyards and grocery-store aisles around the world.

Although the menu remains firmly rooted in the Old World, the dining room evokes classical American aesthetics. Exposed brickwork and wrought-iron lanterns surround the tables, and one wall sports a hand-painted mural of a Boston streetscape.

The service was outstanding. The attention to detail was great. And, the food... was great too.
