CORE Kitchen & Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: CORE Kitchen & Wine Bar is the heart of the culinary scene at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain. This American kitchen is a fine spot for special occasions or family dining. Fruit from the on-grounds citrus grove can be found on the breakfast and dinner menus --- oranges and grapefruit on a fruit platter, to more elaborate preparations at dinner. Starters range from braised pork belly with seasonal vegetables to ahi with Asian overtones. Since the majority of the menu is considered seasonal, items tend to vary, but seafood, pork, steaks, pasta and more will always be available in some fashion. Sommeliers are sure to find the ideal pairing whatever you choose, as the wine program is deep and global. Weekly wine tastings on Fridays offer a fun evening at a reasonable price. The dessert list is small but tantalizing; we opt for the café con leche pot de crème.
