Cesare's Wine Bar now Domacin


Cesare's Wine Bar changed hands in December, but the new Domacin has the same chef, same staff, and similar menu--and that super cool captain's wine room hasn't changed a bit.

The Stillwater Gazette reports:

In December, former Cesare's manager Aleks Pantic and longtime patron Richard Hoch purchased the business from Brian Gruis and changed the name to Domaćin Restaurant & Winebar.

"Domaćin," pronounced DOME-uh-chin, means "master of the house" in Serbian, Pantic's native language, and it is an homage to his great-grandfather, a Serbian winemaker who earned the nickname for the hospitality he showed his guests.

Apart from the name, little has changed: Jonathan Flatt remains the executive chef, the staff and decor are the same - even the new sign was modeled after the one it replaced.
