Cheese Dip

A wine bar with a romantic retro secret

he lesser-known spinoff of the Blue Room next door, Belly Wine Bar is off to the side of its parent restaurant, and has just 45 seats. But you can reserve two of them any night for a romantic retro (and affordably priced) fondue dinner for two, paired with wine (the focus is on Italy), by the glass or bottle. Or try any of the other charcuterie-style food, some oysters, or a cheese plate. Connolly


Belly Wine Bar is owned by Nick Zappia and Liz Vilardi, who also own the Blue Room and Central Bottle, and was inspired by their travels through the Alto Adige Region of Italy.
