Cork Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: Along the 14th St. corridor, Cork Wine Bar surely stands out for its diminutive size and its maximal crowds, all jammed in the three dining areas: the front room, the “loft” and the back room, which has a view of the kitchen in action. Because of the close quarters, you might become best buddies with those at adjacent tables. The kitchen has the occasional misstep --- for example, the cheese hadn’t melted on our pan-crisped brioche sandwich. However, there are several dishes we would order again: Angus flatiron steak, sautéed wild mushrooms, and Lizzie’s goat cheese cake for dessert. The name of the game here is really the see-and-be-seen scene for the twentysomething crowds. The wine list offers between 45-55 wines by the glass and more than 350 bottles. Also, be sure to ask about upcoming wine tasting events and wine classes.
