Kevin Meeker of Philadelphia Fish & Company brings urban chic to Westmont with Cork, a free-standing (free parking!) ode to creative seafood. Look for Asian accents from the kitchen and a hip interior, including a “floating” community table, from of-the-moment design firm DAS.
I guess when they closed the Inn on the Ave the old age home needed somewhere to dump their clients during the day, because that's what my friends and i found here. Old people, super expensive for little drinks, obnoxious staff. This place should close cause they've obviously stopped trying!
Pros: Parking lot was empty so we could leave quickly
Cons: food, atmosphere, prices
Hey Kevin - here's a clue - when posting a review of your own place on other review sites - don't use your real name:
What a wonderful dining experience in South Jersey. We started with tuna tartare, braised short ribs with grits and a pizza. They were all off the hook. The beer and wines were moderately priced and went great with first course. Not all were in the mood for dinner so my girlfriend had lobster mac & cheese off the bar menu and I went for the Asian pepper steak while Janet had the crab cake. All I can say was WOW!
Forget spending $25.00 to park in Philly and bridge toll. This place is city sophisitaction and surburban casual. Posted by William: May. May 12th, 2009 at 5:19 PM
Some friends and I went to dinner last night at Cork, looking to try a new place which boasted interesting fusion cuisine.
The food was decent, but definitely overpriced, with small portions!! My husband and I spent $70 on soup (which was served in a ridiculously shallow dish), an appetizer (the mini-sized spring rolls), a selection from the cafe menu (lobster mac n'cheese-- it was tasted alright, but was tiny and lacked the amount of lobster one would expect for the size/price), and a salad with salmon.
And stay away from the chocolate ganache torte-- I am a HUGE chocolate ANYTHING fan, and I did not like this at all-- everyone at the table sampled it and agreed: it was gritty and left an unpleasant aftertaste.
After spending more than $200 there, our table walked out disappointed and wishing we would have stuck with a more economical food option that would have been much more satisfying!
This is not to say there isn't atmosphere or ambience at Cork, but it's not worth the hefty price tag for the subpar food. Posted by sara: Oct. October 5th, 2008 at 1:34 PM
