Corner Bistro and Wine Bar
One could travel across the world and still not taste as many wines as Corner Bistro has. Sourced from France, Italy, Portugal, and across the United States, the list of more than 100 wines pairs equally with light lunch cuisine such as vegetarian Corner sandwiches or dinner offerings that include braised short ribs and scallops Victoria with truffle-lobster mac 'n' cheese. On Sunday, the bistro unveils a brunch menu populated by an enormous spread of crab cakes benedict, omelets stuffed with bacon and brie, and belgian waffles topped with berries, maple syrup, and Grand Marnier cream. On Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday at 9 p.m., guests can join Matt "Piano Man" Hall as he croons about rieslings and recounts the time he thumb-wrestled Billy Joel for his nickname.
