When she heard that Vin X Vinos was leaving its Felida Village space, she nabbed the spot for her wine and Champagne bar.
Cork & Bubbles will serve Champagne, as well as sparkling wine from California. A bubbly is called Champagne if it’s made in the Champagne region of France. All other effervescent wines are called sparkling wine. Medak is working on sourcing bottles from other places, such as Washington and New Zealand.
Pours will be available by the bottle, by the glass or in flights. Signature cocktails, such as an old fashioned or Aperol spritz; wine-based libations, such as sangria; and cans of craft beer, seltzer and cider round out the drink offerings.
The short food menu includes dishes not available at nearby establishments.
“I’m trying to be thoughtful of the other restaurants around me,” Medak said.
The food, like the decor, is elegant but approachable, with offerings such as meatballs in wine sauce, chicken skewers, bacon-wrapped asparagus, caprese skewers and cheese, as well as charcuterie boards.
Opening hours are 3 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays and noon to 9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Cork & Bubbles will be closed on Sundays and Mondays.
