What You'll Get
Wine-tasting technique demands that you first swirl the glass, then take a sip, and then very slowly dribble wine down your chin so that the rest of your body can taste it. Imbibe elegance with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $25 for two glasses of wine and two dishes (up to a $58 value)
- $45 for four glasses of wine and four dishes (up to a $116 value)
This deal is valid for dishes (up to a $14 value each) from the sandwich, salad, pasta, small plate, or dessert sections of the menu, such as the spaghetti alla carbonara or the fried calamari in tartar sauce. The wine list includes two dozen wines by the glass (up to a $15 value each), such as the Wyndham Estate shiraz 2007.
Like any good basement, Cellar 58 is full of secrets. Hidden in the back of the East Village eatery is a wine-tasting room—recently described as "elegant" by New York magazine—that shelters more than 150 varietals hailing from such overlooked countries as Greece and Bulgaria. Two-dozen wines can be poured by the glass, including several culled from the vineyards of Italy, France, and similarly eminent regions.
There also lurks a surprising treasure in the front dining room. Marble-topped tables play host to entrees and small plates prepared by chef Fabio Bano, who comes to Cellar 58 from the ultra-private Soho House. Using cooking methods that he learned and perfected in Italy, Bano handcrafts pastas and inventive desserts, which, like top-secret memos, melt satisfyingly upon entering the mouth.
