The Avenue’s newest restaurant is the Corner. Its menu is “Continental in nature but Chef Bernard applies his rustic approach for a heightened level of comfort,” according to its website.
If you’ve shopped at The Wine Source, you’ve probably gone by this unassuming space at the juncture of 36th Street and Elm Avenue many times, wondering what was going on behind the rather intimidating red door. Now, there are bright windows and a spiffied-up interior.
A couple of things to know before you go: It’s BYOB and accepts only cash. The good news is there are several ATMs nearby and The Wine Source and Keller’s Liquor Store are within walking distance.
The restaurant is open Wed.-Sun. for dinner, starting at 5 p.m., and will be serving brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. Entrees include dishes like Dover sole meunière (the most expensive item, $26), beef stew made with Resurrection ale ($17), mussels prepared various ways ($19), and flambéed steak ($22).
You can bring the kids, too, as long as they’re not cranky. As the menu states, “Behaved children are most welcome.”
