Sideways by Cellar to Table Description

Named after the 2004 Blockbuster hit Sideways – a dark comedy storyline of a wine tasting road trip of two friends that grievously staggers sideways towards mid-life crisis – Sideways by Cellar to Table shares the same deep-rooted affinity for wine as the main character, but without the tragedy. 

While Cellar to Table is a Mediterranean bistro, Sideways by Cellar to Table is all about straightforward comfort food with a strong emphasis on wine exploration. Think burgers, pastas, salads, and a smattering of Spanish tapas for good measure – with each individual dish paired with a specific glass of wine. 

Seemingly at odds with one another – stacked burgers dripping with grease, gooey cheese and smarmy sauce coupled with boutique vintage wines – the pairing of the two embodies the film’s takeaway as well as the ethos of the restaurant – it’s not about the caliber of the winery, the exact vintage nor the cost of the bottle. Instead, it should be about the moment in which it’s experienced – the people you’re with, the delicious food you’re eating (regardless of extravagance level), and the joy you feel.

And trust us, we feel all the joy while crushing a bacon and cheddar burger, washing it down with a crisp Provence rosé. Concept proven successful.
