Wine Bar: Doma

Eating Out

Some of my favorite dining experiences arise from walking into a random restaurant with no expectations, information or preconceived notions about the food.  I was in the West Village the other day and passed by a cute little winebar called Doma.  After a quick perusal of the menu, I walked in and was treated (by yours truly) to a really scrumptious meal!  There were a variety dishes to choose from.  I first started with…

a salad of roasted beets, avocado, almonds, and herb dressing.  I’ve become a recent fan of beets, and the sweet and mild flavor complemented the creamy avocado perfectly.  The almonds added a much-desired crunch, and the herb dressing had a bit of a tangy kick.  Deelish!

I next ordered two selections from the crostini menu.  I first sampled the chickpea puree with parsley and Parmesan crostini:

The chickpea puree was smooth and creamy, and the parmesan and parsley added a ton of flavor.  Mmmmm.  I also ordered the house-made ricotta with honey and thyme crostini:

I love ricotta and honey, and the thyme really rounds out the flavor.  This almost felt like a dessert, but I didn’t let that stop me from finishing it!

Continuing on my Brussels sprout kick, I ordered the the roasted veggies of the day:

Doma roasted these sprouts in a sweet vinaigrette, and once again, I gobbled these cute little guys up.

I finished my dining experience with the brownie sundae with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce:

The sundae was pretty standard – not the most AMAZING sundae in the world, but perfectly acceptable (to devour entirely).

Doma is housed a quaint space with windowed seating, friendly and knowledgeable waitstaff (they walked my eating buddy through several different wine options), and a varied and interesting menu selection.  If you’re ever in the West Village, give this little restaurant a try!

Quaint Village ambiance and delicious food to boot.
