Wining without dining is like wearing a freshly washed shirt without drying it—it smells good and suits your stomach but can cause disaster on refrigeration plant tours. Indulge in sips and savories simultaneously with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of acclaimed seasonally inspired, New American cuisine at Corks. Situated on bustling Charles Street, Corks couples a wine-friendly menu with a fun, energetic atmosphere for a memorable meal.
A fascination with edible science and unexpected mixtures motivated Chef Pellegrino to dream up Corks' seasonally influenced menu of New American cuisine. Whet your appetite with a charcuterie plate of cured meats, pâté, house pickles, and mustard ($10), an apple and roasted beet salad ($8), or a batch of steamed mussels bathing in a sauce of tomato, garlic, and white wine ($8). Heartier selections include alfredo-coated penne with shrimp and fresh spinach ($18) and a black-truffle Angus meatloaf topped with mushroom gravy and sided with glazed carrots and mashed potatoes ($18).
Heralded as one of the area's most wine-friendly menus, Corks' library of grapen goodness has a pour to match every plate. Whether seeking floral and vibrant or umbonate and remorseful flavors, oenophiles will find a white or red by the glass or bottle. Exposed brick, dim, sultry lighting, and a small dining room make the intimate eatery feel as cozy as a refurbished tree fort catered by your favorite lunch lady. Get this Groupon for an adult alternative to grilled cheese, a delicious brunch, or a buzzy spot to unwind with friends you made at the bus stop.
