We are saddened to tell you that we must close our beautiful restaurant. From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank you, all of our friends and loyal guests, for your support and let you know that our last date of operations will be Saturday, December 23rd.
Help us go out with a bang and come in to see us over the next week so we can thank you in person for all of your business and support! Join us for a specialty cheese plate, delicious meal, or stop in for happy hour at the bar. The amazing Casellula @ Alphabet City staff would love to see you and say goodbye!
Again, many thanks and we look forward to seeing you before December 23rd.
Brian Keyser, Owner
Casellula @ Alphabet City
Our philosophy is simple: to share our passion for hand-made cheeses with as many people as possible. To that end, we have about 25 cheeses from around the world on our menu every day.
The choices range from the familiar to the obscure; from mild to strong (and on to super, duper, crazy, stinky); from fresh to washed to blue. And because not every cheese goes with quince paste, we take pains to pair each cheese with its perfect house-made condiment.
It doesn't stop with cheese, though. Our menu of shareable dishes will satisfy any palate. And with a plethora of wines, beers, and cocktails on our list, your geeking out doesn't need to be limited to the cheese.
Want to Know Our Secrets to Composing a Great Cheese Plate?
So does Casellula's owner, Brian Keyser. He, along with co-author Leigh Friend, has compiled a new book not just about cheese, but the art of pairing cheese with its perfect accompaniment. Along with chapters explaining the fundamentals of cheese, Composing the Cheese Plate is rife with 70 recipes for condiments (think pink pepper pickled rhubarb and anise meringue) that will change the way you eat cheese.
