They have wine, they have art and they have food. What’s not to like? Richmond.com reviewers Jon and Leah Nelson weren’t thrilled with one appetizer and one entree but did find success in other areas. Read the full review to get the details but since I’m in a mood for something sweet I give you this tidbit.
Desserts are also a highlight. Although the tiramisu had just run out, we were well-sated by the pineapple upside-down cake ($6). Topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, the cake was moist and slightly sweet, making for a nice end to our meal.
Running a restaurant is not easy, so running a restaurant on top of an art gallery and retail wine sales must be a challenge. C’est Le Vin can certainly pull off this trifecta with a little more focus on food service and sticking with Italian specialties. Fun times already abound and, given more time to work out the best balance, C’est Le Vin has the chops to provide a great dining experience as well.
