Cellar 56 - Atlanta, Georgia - Tapas and Wine Bar

Cellar 56 Atlanta Tapas Best of Menu Part of 7-article Cellar 56 Review at CheyenneJack.com

Cellar 56 Best of Menu Review

Cellar 56 Best Overall Tapas Dish

Herb Roasted Prestige Farms Chicken, Caramelized Shallot Butter
I have eaten a lot of chicken in my lifetime. I expected a basic staple chicken dish to be offered among the more eclectic dishes. Wow, was I proved wrong. This was by far the juiciest, most delectable chicken I have ever tasted. Chicken will never be the same again after tasting this perfectly prepared bird. I really wanted to report some exotic dish as the best, but this will shock you in its simpleness and yet mind-blowing richness. Wow.

Cellar 56 Best Tapas Combination

Green Chile/Prosciutto Mac & Cheese
& Guinness Braised Short Rib, Natural Reduction

These are not served together and individually they are great dishes that I think will be amazing when combined. The Mac n Cheese is delicious with the spicy chile giving it a solid kick of flavor. The braised short rib was extremely juicy and succulent with amazing flavor falling right off the bone (hopefully into my Mac N Cheese next time). Mountain men will shower up, shave and dawn a jacket just to get at this down home combination.

Cellar 56 Best Tapas from the Sea

Jumbo Lump Crabmeat, Avocado, Grapefruit Mojo
This has the potential to be a Cellar 56 signature dish. This unique blend of flavors with the crabmeat and avocados smattered with the Mojo is a treat. Hopefully they will offer a small cracker with this dish in the future. In doing so, I think this will be a requisite dish for all new-comers to try. Even repeat visitors will enjoy consistently starting their Cellar 56 tapas dining experience with this signature "get ready to explore taste tonight" dish.

Cellar 56 Best Tapas from the Garden

Grilled Flatbread, Roma Tomatoes, Maplebrook Farms Mozzarella
So good I didn't even realize I wasn't eating a boutique pizza full of all the fattening pepperoni and meats. By far my favorite dish served atop their delicious flatbread options and the top dish from the garden menu.

Cellar 56 Best Tapas Dessert

Coconut Cream Pie
Dessert came by the time my mouth had wound its way through the dizzying array of all of Chef Paul's flavors from the garden, land and sea. I was not sure if I would be able to take on much more.  Then I dived into the coconut creme pie. It was amazing and so delicious, I wanted to be like a real cow and fill my other 6 stomachs with this delightful dish. Even those that did like coconut at the table still raved about this sweet.  This pie now tops my list beating out the Haupia Mud Pie found on the North Shore of Hawaii.

About three months ago I recently went to Cellar56 and I was amazed! The food quality is the greatest for the affordable price of under $20. Chef Brian Harris made me feel comfortable and was very knowledgable. I will always recommend this hide away to everyone that I know.
