Cork'er Restaurant Review:

Attached to the Mysterious Galaxy bookstore in Redondo Beach, Cork'er, from Larry Killian, formerly of the nearby Killian's Irish Pub, offers a gourmet gastropub take on U.K. favorites and other farm-to-table dishes. Expect shepherd's pie and corned beef and cabbage alongside spicy pulled pork and fingerling potatoes with bacon jam. There's also a wide selection of local craft beers, select California wines, and organic coffee and teas. For breakfast, you’ll find good espresso drinks, respectable eggs Benedict, oatmeal and a Celtic waffle stuffed with sausage and eggs. The modern space is attractive, with polished wooden tables and matching banquettes, as well as local art lining the walls. We like the concept of brick-and-mortar bookstores, and like even more those with adjoining dining.
