A new wine bar with food opens at 22 St. Stephen’s Green in Dublin, on the garden level of this fine, late 18th century building. With a team led by sommelier Victor Nedelea and chef Chris Maguire, Cellar 22 is a cosy, intimate, downstairs space with an eclectic and wide-ranging wine list, and an interesting, contemporary, all-day dining menu.
With a feature wine bar, and an open kitchen showcasing handmade charcuterie, breads and great cheese from around the country and further afield, Cellar 22 celebrates excellent ingredients in the room, in the glass and on the plate.
The wine list features everything from high-end, old world producers by the bottle or sampled through a Coravin through to dynamic young winemakers making delicious, sustainable wine. With almost 30 pouring wines available by the glass and a backbone of classics, the list is perfectly designed for exploration.
There’s a snug, some booths, and high refectory tables with comfy bar stools, and Cellar 22 takes bookings for both lunch and dinner with walk-ins available. They can accommodate groups of up to 8 at their tall tables for the seasonal à la carte menu that is served from midday through until closing.
Whether for lunch, an afternoon snack with a glass of something good, a casual dinner, some sharing plates or a top-shelf bottle, Cellar 22 is open from 12 midday every day until 9.30 pm Sunday — Thursday, and 10.30 pm on Friday and Saturday.
