Newly Opened In La Quinta, Adjacent To Cooking With Class
The newly opened Cork & Fork started life as a weekly small plate and wine by the glass happy hour experience at Cooking With Class, which is located right next door to the new restaurant.
Chef/Owner, Andi Hubka, and mom/partner, Jane Angwin, collaborated on their new and unique dining concept, building an intimate, handsome space which is both comfortable and relaxed. Cork & Fork features creative small plates ranging from classic comfort food to exotic fusion. Their mix, match, share, and enjoy policy is fun and interesting, and allows diners to choose their own little adventure, or they can let Chef Andi choose a small plate tasting for them.
On a recent visit, my husband, Bill, and I shared smoked pork tacos, the amazing house cured salmon and the artisan three cheese plate. On a repeat visit, Bill enjoyed a tasty Margherita pizza, while I just had to have my fix of mac and cheese. In the desert department we both sampled the house made Gelato and, my recent favorite, a wonderful butterscotch pot du crème.
Ever-Changing Hand Picked Wine List
Cork & Fork offers an ever-changing hand picked wine list which includes sampling flights, which is a great way to discover delicious and affordable wines. They also offer beer and a selection of Sujo cocktails made with distilled rice wine liqueur. Diners may also take home a bottle of any wine at 50% off Cork & Forks listed bottle price.
We enjoyed the food, the staff, and the intimate space, and will be returning often. My only suggestion to chef Andi would be to add a few lighter fare small plates.
