Metrocurean wrote about this spot back in July but I finally walked by the location and noticed the alcohol permit.
I was wondering what was going to happen at this prime location at the corner of 14th and Church. According to Cork & Fork’s Web site:
“Cork & Fork is a place for wine and food lovers. Customers can attend monthly wine seminars as well as Wine 101 classes where they can develop their enjoyment of wine and food. The flagship store in Gainesville, VA opened in 2005 and was the first of its kind in the fast developing Western part of Prince William County where Gainesville has become known as the “Gateway to Virginia Wine Country” because of its proximity to a number of wineries in the Northern Virginia area. Besides carrying select Virginia wines, Cork & Fork stocks some of the finest wines, beers, and cheeses from around the world not available at your local grocery store.”
Sounds awesome. Thought, as others have noted, it is crazy that there will be Cork wine bar, Cork’s new market (same owners) and now Cork & Fork (different owners) all within a few blocks of each other on 14th Street.
