Great Bars 2011: Cork

This crowded wine bar draws a mixture of neighborhood regulars, inked rockers in denim tuxedos, and bleached blondes in fur coats and red stiletto heels. Owners Khalid Pitts and Diane Gross showcase Old World wines, among which are some very good Malbecs and Barberas. The small-plates menu includes standouts such as grilled bread with avocado and crushed pistachios and pan-fried pork schnitzel with a savory ginger consommé.
