Corner Wine Bar

One of the most extensive wine lists in the city (may we suggest the Fetzer Gewürztraminer #251, which is a surprisingly good wine for the price, in our opinion), some of the best food (Bistro Style Chicken, carrot souffle) and some of the best dessert (bête noir and a glass of port). Sit outside on a nice evening, and you’ll enjoy yourself. We promise. The only reason why we haven’t been back recently is that the menu still does not appear to have changed.

Update January 2005: We went back a few weeks ago, and no menu changes apparent. I tried the ginger pork chops, though, and they were tender and juicy. The horseradish mashed potatoes were delicious, and the carrot souffle…why it’s not on the dessert menu is beyond me. Chris had some average pasta, nothing special. The bread could have been warmed up a little bit, and is it me, or is 3 ounces a little small for a glass of wine? We didn’t particular jive well with the waiter, and that’s usually our litmus as to whether we’ll order dessert, so this time we headed out after the meal. To sum up, it was OK, but not as great as we remembered it. A few menu changes and a little perkiness would do them good.

Update February 2005: We received notice from the owner that a new menu is on the way. We’re looking forward to going back and testing it out, and hopefully a more favorable review is on the way.
