Food that goes with wine? West Seattle Cellars wants you


West Seattle Cellars owners are continuing to work on finishing the neighboring space they once hoped would become a wine bar. It’s been a while since our last update, and signs of construction are more noticeable outside the building, so we dropped by today to check on how it’s going. Turns out that work will be done next month; Tom and Jan are showing the available space to anyone interested in opening a “compatible food store” – but only by appointment, no drop-ins (and no other wine vendors) – they’re setting appointments by phone at 937-2868.

    Why was the wine bar canceled? That would have been a great addition to the neighborhood!

    Red-tape problems, in short.

    I’ve always thought a small custom dessert shop would be a perfect fit there… you’re having a dinner party, you drive there to pick up the wine and the pastry, or you stop in for a slice of something delectable with a nicely paired glass of wine (think Dilletante). But now that Bakery Nouveau has made such a splash, does anyone think a dessert shop would work there?

    ABSOLUTELY it would work there. Nouveau is fine, but it doesn’t have the wine connection. I could totally see the right combination of dessert and specialty foods/cheeze and other wine appropriate lovelyness there!

Sorry, comment time is over.
