The Terrace Bar at the Little Nell

Steve and I ended up at the Terrace Bar at the Little Nell this evening to have a quiet drink before heading home after work. We first headed to 39 Degrees at the Sky Hotel but it was packed and loud and not really what we were looking for. Much more of an apres ski crowd which often is what we're looking for but not tonight.

Since I really wanted a glass of Riesling which many bars don't serve, our options were more limited than they might otherwise be. As we walked by the Little Nell, we popped in to peruse the bar menu and were in luck. They serve a Betts & Scholl Riesling by the glass and weren't too crowded so we stopped.

We sat in the window overlooking the pool area which was nicely lit with steam rising from the various pools and fountains. Good ambience.

The wine? Not so much. It was too dry for my taste. I prefer a sweeter taste with a finish with a nice acidity for complexity.

The yellowtail tuna crudo however was heavenly.

And my followup drink, the Rossini, strawberry puree, St. Germain and Prosecco served in a champagne flute, went down quite nicely.
