Cellar 55: Hollywood’s New Vinoteque

On Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

Melrose hottest new wine bar, Cellar 55, is now open for business. Located in the space formerly occupied by the Italian eatery, Goodfellas, Cellar 55 offers Melrose denizens an expansive and non- cost prohibitive selection of wines. The venue is also walking distance to an assortment of different pubs and local hang- outs. In addition to its ample wine menu, Cellar 55 also serves delectable Italian-American fusion cuisine, which is sure to satisfy the most ravenous of appetites.

Cellar 55 is an ideal meeting point for an afternoon cocktail, a friendly gathering, or a romantic date. Also, the venue boasts a hidden back patio, which evokes comparisons to Mediterranean style and design. The patio’s comfortable furnishings, replete with throw pillows, comfy lounge seating, and decorative candle arrangements only add to Cellar 55’s recurring theme of relaxed luxury with an unmistakably European influence.

The brother-and-sister ownership team of Mike and Suzy Mnatsakanyan, who operated Goodfellas before embarking on their Cellar 55 venture, are developing some exciting ideas for their new business. The restaurateurs plan to make the piano in the main dining room available to regular singers and musicians for some epic live performances, which are sure to dazzle and enchant the wine bar’s lucky guests.
