Forget everything you thought you knew about wine, bars and European cuisine because Formaggio Wine Bar changes all that. The restaurant’s cozy and intimate vibe is respected by many, and holds the reputation as a prime spot for winers and diners in pursuit of a chic but low-key eatery that’s perfect for ladies’ night out or a romantic dinner for two.
Situated on the lower level of Market City Shopping Center, Formaggio Wine Bar is owned and operated by Nepal natives Niraj Maskey and Anwesh Singh. They took over the restaurant in 2012, when its previous owners decided to sell it. Being a restaurant/wine bar, the hard-hitting question is: Just how vast is Formaggio’s wine selection? A rough estimate is around 50 (wine) varieties by the glass — and growing in addition to the monthly wine specials they have by the glass. Vino connoisseurs are fans of Formaggio’s happy hour offered daily from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm (daily) and again from 10 pm to 11 pm (except Sundays). During these times, patrons may select any wines from the list at 20% off, in addition to an extensive list of tapas.
Partake in rustically inspired food and drink while soaking in the sounds of live acoustic melodies, classic rock and more, provided by some of the island’s best musicians. At Formaggio Wine Bar the focus is on luscious wines and avant-garde fare. Once and for all, your palate is exposed to everything it ever desired.
