Excellent dinner at Corked to celebrate our wedding anniversary. My husband had a cherry sangria and I had a glass of champagne while we perused the menu. We shared the dinner for 2 which consisted of a medium rare rib eye, a very generous portion of salad, pancetta mac and cheese, zucchini & tomatoes, mashed potatoes, crab cakes, and assorted bread. We shared a lemon blueberry cake with vanilla ice cream for dessert and I also had a decaf cappuccino. Our server, Rita, was very attentive and explained everything without being obtrusive.
The steak. My husband really likes his steaks cooked medium but since many places over cook steaks we order it medium rare when we dine out. The steak was a PERFECT medium rare; warm red inside with nice searing on the outside. The meat was tender and flavorful and the fat was nice and buttery.
The sides varied from okay to great. I'm not a mac and cheese lover but the pancetta mac and cheese was incredible. I was too full to eat much of it and had half of the dish packed to take home. Mashed potatoes were quite good as was the zucchini dish. The vegetables were not overcooked and the potatoes were flavorful. The crab cakes were a little disappointing in that I had several large pieces of shell and leg in my portion. It made it hard to enjoy what otherwise was a tasty crabcake.
The lemon blueberry cake was okay. I was expecting a stronger lemon taste. If you like a mild lemon flavor, this would be your choice. The decaf cappuccino was a perfect way to end the meal.
While my husband and I were dressed to celebrate our anniversary, I was a little surprised that there were quite a few diners in shorts, sneakers, and baseball caps. Since they do have other less expensive items on the menu, not everyone may feel like changing before goung out to dinner. We wanted to try some of the other items on the menu and decided to come back for a non-special occasion meal soon. Please see next review.
