Cork Chef Named

According to Don Rockwell, Chef Ron Tanaka will be in charge of the kitchen at Cork, a new wine bar to open up on 14th Street in mid-January.

This is great news for the restaurant/wine bar, as Tanaka has split time over the past eight years between CityZen and Citronelle, both as sous chef.

Tanaka told Rockwell that he plans on doing, "small, Italian tapas-sort-of plates", that will, "force me to use a different type of creativity."

In a city already filled with great wine bars, and with more to come, I hope that Chef Tanaka's work can keep Cork afloat.
