I was so excited to celebrate Valentine’s Day 2011 with dinner at the Wine Cellar.
When Jared and I first started dating, he lived around the corner from the Wine Cellar. Each time we passed, I would mention that I wanted to eat there because there are fondue options on the menu.
Since I was in charge of the reservations for V-Day 2011 and decided to make my fondue dreams come true.
Our pre-fixe meal started with salads and cheese fondue. The classic cheese fondue was served with bread and potatoes for dipping. Mmm! Jared, previously anti-fondue, was obsessed. The salad consisted of tossed mesclun greens with artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, and hard boiled eggs with house vinaigrette. I don’t like eggs, but I picked around them and was able to enjoy my salad.
I chose the Filet Mignon for my entree. It was topped with Bearnaise sauce and served with broccoli and spiced potato alumettes. It was a decent meal and I enjoyed the filet.
Dessert was the highlight of the meal: Dark chocolate fondue served with marshmallows, cookies, brownies, and fruit. So delicious!
Jared and I enjoy the intimate atmosphere at the Wine Cellar. It was a nice way to celebrate Valentine’s Day and try fondue for the very first time.
Not wanting to end the light so early (our dinner was during the 1st seating, at 5:30 pm), Jared and I sat at the bar at Top of the Hub and enjoyed a few drinks. I had a martini and a wonderfully refreshing Cucumber Mojito, pictured above.
