I had brunch at Cork Wine Bar this past Sunday with my friend Meg. I live in the neighborhood and I am a regular customer in the evenings for the wine flights, avocado toasts, and what I believe to be one of the best cheese plates in town. However, after months of their brunch being open, I still had not been until this week.
The menu is small and includes a bunch of the dishes they also offer in the evening such as the brioche sandwich, but there are many additional offerings that include pastries, eggs, and breakfast-like food. I really enjoyed the baked egg in Parmesan crust with mushrooms, asparagus, and Gruyere. The crust was crispy and cheesy and did not disappoint. I also loved sipping on the Citrus Mimosa Flight with grapefruit, orange, and blood orange. It made the brunch have a festive touch, and allowed us to take our time as we grazed on small plates.
However, the real standout dish at Cork's brunch is the house-made cinnamon rolls which I am still thinking about a week later. They are baked to order and served in a black cast iron pan bubbling over with butter, cinnamon, and sugar. They were piping hot, and Meg and I could not resist eating every bite, and also dipping the rolls back into the pan to soak up all the of the delicious flavors. These cinnamon rolls are heavenly and I will be back for more. Have you tried them yet?
