Cellar 46

owner honored

The owner of Mercer Island’s Cellar 46, Ryan Allison, has been named to the Puget Sound Business Journal’s ‘40 Under 40,’ a program that honors local business leaders under age 40.

“It was a fun honor to receive for such a new business,” said Allison. “Our unique business model — restaurant and wine shop together — was the reason we won the award, and also for having created such a splash in the market, being a brand new business and being on Mercer Island. They’re excited that something new is happening on Mercer Island with all the change and development.”

Cellar 46, a wine bar and restaurant, opened just over a year ago in The Mercer retail area downtown.

Allison and Cellar 46 will be featured in the Sept. 12 issue of the Puget Sound Business Journal with the other winners, chosen for “career accomplishments, work ethic and social responsibility.” The 10th annual 40 Under 40 Honoree Bash, an awards event, will be held in September at the Seattle Repertory Theatre, sponsored by U.S. Bank and the World Trade Center of Seattle.
