Cella Bistro (Schenectady)

Went to Cella Bistro.

It was crowded. We sat in the front so we could have the option of ordering tapas. When it's less busy sometimes they let you order tapas in the main dining room. Same friendly service. Now on to the food:

Fried chick peas with lime - particularly good. One of my favorites.

Grilled baby artichokes on a bed of baby arugula with ? - very good. Simple and delicious.

Small white sardines in olive oil and lemon - very good. Had before, a favorite.

Texas Toothpicks - fried jalapenos and onions with chipotle mayo. Disappointing - no heat! Some of us like it hot . . .Would not order again.

Fried calamari with ? sauce. Cooked properly. By now I had had my fill of fried food . . .

Wine mark up is low here and we appreciate that. Joseph Phelps c. sauvignon for $60 :)

Had a lemon dessert and espresso. The lemon dessert brought back memories of Bloomer's lemon icebox cake. . .

I'm sure there's more on Cella Bistro on this long thread and the General Tristate Archive.:
