    What to get: Chicken-liver pâté with shallot marmalade; oil-cured tomatoes on toast; fried calamari and shrimp with zingy rémoulade; grilled flatiron steak with anchovy vinaigrette.

    Definitely try the avocado w/ the pistachios on grilled bread. It's fantastic! For wine I recommend the La Montesa, Rioja, Palacios Remondo 2004 from Spain. Potent!

    Call 30 minutes ahead to snag a table (they don't take reservations). The pistachio & avocado toast is a must-order!

    Cork is not only an exceedingly popular wine bar, it's also a gourmet market for those special holiday meals you'll be making at home.

  • The Feast

    Cork matches its wine selection with an equally impressive cheese menu. It's fairly economical, as well, at three for $12, five for $18, and seven for $24.

    Great wine and food. The Duck Confit is the best thing on the menu. After that I'd say the Brioche and Sea Bream/Orata are tied for second. Change of pace? Pete is one of the best mixologists in DC

    they've got a great cheese selection to go with the wine... get a tray and try a few

    Goes without saying that the avocado bruschetta continues to be a revelation.

    avocado toast!!!! if you come here and do not order this it is a tragic story.

    Bitches say B+! a tasty meal at a reasonable price. I would go again to experience the avocado toast and cinnamon rolls—as well to check out some other items on the menu

    The restaurant is known for its wine list, and the rotating, curated flights are a good opportunity to sample some of the more usual selections from it. [Eater 38 Member]

    Who knew that pistachios and avocado was a match made in heaven? Get a little bit of everything and trust the waiter's suggestions. Good for groups of 4-6 as well as dates.

  • FiOS 50

    Their recently launched Sunday brunch menu inncludes not only its popular small plate but also delicious things like bacon cheddar scones and a baked egg in a parmesan crust.

    FiOS 50 · January 3, 2012

    Must: Avocado & pistachio toast. The small/large size of calamari are comparable. Travis (server w/the amazing arm artwork) gives the best recommendations!

    Catherine · March 14, 2011
  • John W.

    The Calamari appetizer it great especially the Caper Remoulade that goes with it.

    John Wolf · August 8, 2010
  • Sherrie B.

    Excellent wine list. The organic chicken and the toasted tomatoes with balsamic vinaigrette on toasted baguettes are to die for!

    Sherrie Bakshi · May 17, 2010
  • Bernard M.

    It's a nice atmosphere. They keep the music low to allow conversation. Also, I enjoyed the flatbread.

    Bernard M · February 6
  • Matt B.

    Great place for a date. The small plates were really good, especially the eggplant flatbread and the tortellini.

    Fucking scallops

    Chris Kehoe · December 20, 2014

    They really need to see there's a world full of wine out there, beyond France, Italy and Spain. Friendly staff and good taste, but portions are tiny...

  • Rebecca M.

    The Domaine Billard Père et Fils, Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Beaune 2009 (Pinot Noir) is the best I've ever had. I had three glasses, just to be sure. Pair with cheese and charcuterie and leave happy.

    über-trendy Logan Circle wine bar, “a huge array of wines by the glass without an outrageous markup” is paired with “delightful” New American small plates with an “extra edge of creativity”

    A true wine bar in every sense, you can't go wrong with a glass of Bordeaux here.
