Cork Review

This rustic, dimly lighted slip of a wine bar brings chic cuisine to the still-gentrifying streets of the city's hippest neighborhood. The wine list features rare varietals—most under $10 per glass. Even teetotalers will find much to love among the menu's classic dishes. The duck confit, lately garbed in pickled cherries, and avocado bruschetta with pistachio oil are particular standouts, while the goat cheesecake has made its inventor locally famous. The one thing missing: intimacy. Expect long waits on weekends, and to stand uncomfortably close to fellow tipplers at the bar. It's best to call 30 minutes before you arrive.
