A limited but charming wine-based menu gives Tomasello Wine Cellar & Restaurant a distinctive niche in Cape May's summer restaurant scene. Now in its second season, this pleasant outdoor place celebrates the products of Tomasello Winery in nearby Hammonton. Indeed, part of the restaurant's appeal is a wine bar with free tastings of more than a dozen locally produced bottlings, from light whites to heavy dessert wines. The summer operation is more than just a clever sales gimmick, for this is a legitimate restaurant with delightful cuisine, although many of the expertly prepared sauces admittedly are made with Tomasello wines.
