ロゼッタ outside
There are a couple restaurants/bars which I didn't want to introduce here or even to friends since they were never covered by any media and wanted to keep them as my secret place. One of them was ROSETTA WINE BAR A,VECHAN at Meguro, but since it was introduced on a prime time TV program last week, its no longer a hidden gem and will become one of the most popular wine dining/bar in Tokyo very soon.

ロゼッタ wine
Why did I want to keep Rosetta Wine Bar A, Vechan a secret? It's not only the variety and reasonably priced wine, its also the food and number of seats they have. Before opening Rosetta Wine Bar A, Vechan, the owner owned an Italian restaurant in Ebisu for 13 years called Rosetta. But he wanted to open a joint more focused on wine. Therefore, he decided to provide all dishes at a very reasonable price. All dishes are either 500 or 1,000 yen. Yes, 500 or 1,000 yen. A bottle of wine starts at 2,000 yen and if you wanna try the high end they have bottles around 50,000 yen plus as well. I would strongly recommend to order a bottle instead of a glass of wine, if you aren't by yourself. A glass of wine is 700-1,500 yen.

ロゼッタ 白レバーのパテ
Every dish goes great with wine or champagne like SHIRO LIVER PATE (Chicken white liver pate),

ロゼッタ アスパラガスのグリル 生ハム添え
ASPARAGUS TOH NAMAHAMU (Grilled asparagus with ham),

ロゼッタ スパニッシュオムレツ

ロゼッタ pate

ロゼッタ さんまの香草焼き
they have good selection of seafood and what's available depends on the day, but during the fall dishes like SANMA NO KOHSOHYAKI (Grilled saury with herbs & tomato sauce) are great.

ロゼッタ 若鶏の炭火焼
If you wanna go meaty dishes like WAKADOTI NO SUMIBIYAKI (Grilled chicken) are simple, but goes great with any wine,

ロゼッタ カレー
and even their CURRY RICE goes great especially with red wine. (portion for Curry Rice is fairly small, less than half the size of a normal size)

ロゼッタ inside
Cost performance wise I've never been to a better wine bar than Rosetta Wine Bar A, Vechan. It only has counter seats, no tables, and its probably even more difficult to make a reservation now since its been on a famous prime time TV program. But they just opened another place only a few minutes away called ROSETTA PESCHERIA. So if you can't get a seat at Rosetta Wine Bar A, Vechan ask them for the number of Rosetta Pescheria and see if they have any seats available there. Also, both wine bars won't allow any customers to dine unless you drink wine. There is even a big sign in front of the door which mentions this.
