In the late 19th century, many restaurants and bars were built with tin ceilings stamped in ornate designs. At The Corner Kitchen & Bar, these elaborate ceilings lend the bar area a vintage feel that offsets the menu's inventive dishes, cocktails, and servers riding hoverboards. The kitchen staff fires specialties such as pan-seared sea scallops with ginger-lime vinaigrette, sesame-crusted salmon, and delicate short ribs braised for at least six hours. On select evenings, The Corner Kitchen & Bar hosts live musicians who perform to the cadence of sizzling burgers and clinking glasses.
