Chai 33

I am so excited that I found this restaurant! Chai 33 has an incredible menu, at a very good price, and it totally centers around the wine cellar with over 300 selections. In fact, each table is invited to visit the cellar to choose their bottle of wine and can peruse on their own, or with the sommelier. There are three cellars in all including one that is color coded to help you choose one for your tastes, one that contains the current house favorites, and the third for the Grands Crus.  Reservations are very easy to make, although they do prefer to communicate in French.While the restaurant is a bit out of the city center it is easily accessible by the metro and has a stop very nearby. We look forward to our visit in June and will update after our meal!
