Fine Dining Comes to Anoka!

Now in our 3rd year, Cork has been a blessing to us.  We started the business back in 2013, as a way to share our version of 5 Star Food, at a 4 Star Price with a 3 Star attitude. So many times you go out and eat, you never really get enough...especially at a fine dining establishment.  We decided to show Anoka that we were not messing around.  Our chef, William Martin, creates a new menu every week and the last week of the month we do what is called a ďtasting menuĒ.  We simply ask you your allergies and dislikes, then we donít give you what you dislike or are allergic too, and we all win!

Debi Grant is our wine expert.  Without either a freezer or a microwave in our kitchen, we have a menu that changes weekly to bring you only the freshest, seasonal selections.  Because we change our menu weekly, she changes our wine seasonally.  Although the offerings may change, our quality never does.   Our menu traditionally has 5 apps, 2 salads, 2 pastas and 6 proteins.  We also meet peopleís allergy restrictions.  We offer gluten free choices and can meet most needs.  We pride ourselves on generous portions and a casual, comfortable atmosphere.  Come as you are and come hungry!    Relax and linger over a glass of wine or craft beer... only our food is stuffy.

Located at 1918 1st Ave. in historic downtown Anoka , we are open Wednesday through Saturday, 5:00pm to 9:00pm, taking our last reservation at 8:30pm.  We do take walk-ins on Wednesdays and Thursdays.  We can be reached at 763-433-Cork (2675).

We have been able to support some great causes here in Anoka.  Many guests have told us that we remind them of a place they have visited over seas or NY, and it brings back treasured memories of a place they once were.  We donít think we are the best, we think our customers are...thanks for taking the time to get to know us...and welcome to Cork!
