Coming Soon: Cork Market

An enormous smile came to my face when I read that Diane Gross and Khalid Pitts, the duo behind the wine bar, Cork, will soon open Cork Market, a wine and gourmet food shop. The shop aims to stay true the "rustic urban" feel restaurant goers get at Cork. Set for an September/October opening, the shop will be at 1805 14th Street N.W. Gross and Pitts' goal is to open a customer service oriented store, with a neighborhood feel- not a "hoity-toity" wine and cheese shop.
The first level will offer wines offered at the restaurant, as well as customer favorites (cheeses, carry-out items such as sandwiches, oil-cured Roma tomatoes and olives.) The second floor designated for wine programs and private events.
Oh, I am getting hungry (and thirsty) just thinking about it. Surely any brain child from Gross & Pitts will not disappoint.
