Little Press and Cellar, originally the holding area bar of flagship restaurant The Press Club, has established itself as a watered down version of the institution from which it shares its name. This is due in part to a concise menu of small-shared dishes at a reasonable price. The inclusion of a cellar to house the prized drops calls for an even more impressive wine list. Some of the more unusual wines have been kept fresh using an enomatic preserving system called “Le Verre de Vin”. For a glass the price ranges from $4 for a taste to $95 dollars for a glass.
The menu allows punters to delight in the wares of the restaurant. Mezethakia (little snacks) like prawn kataifi, sticky belly pork and taramosalata achieves celebrity chef and owner George Calombari’s objective to create an “eatery that anyone can drop in, at any time”. There are larger main meals like the fish of the day for those who have come with a bigger appetite.
Despite it’s relaxed, come as you please attitude there is room for real dining alternative with the inclusion of a basement private room that seats up to 12 guests.
