As you walk into this funky, blast from the past restaurant deep in the heart of the theater district, you can’t help but head to the bar for one of their signature cocktails. The cocktails are creations of bar manager Andy Owens that range from Breakfast + Tiffany made with bacon bourbon and maple syrup to With Six You Get Eggroll made with local favorite Leopold’s Gin and tart cherries, quite the range of cocktails from which to choose. I can taste the bacon bourbon cocktail with their brunch menu now.
Speaking of food, executive chef Will Cisa brings his CIA (Culinary Institute of America) education and commitment to local ingredients to fuel his global cuisine menu. Probably one of the best things about The Corner Office (TCO to those of us who are too lazy to say the name) is that you can get a great meal late night, as in until midnight late night. THANK GOODNESS! I admit diner food can satiate those late night, I’ve been out drinking and dancing cravings but you may have a hard time going back to greasy fries and burgers once you have the ramen at TCO. This ramen is head and shoulders above the college staple we all existed on with it’s crispy pork belly, confit pork shoulder and to top it off, a 62 degree egg – yes please! And let’s not forget the house made chicharron that adds great texture to the warm broth of, wait for it, yep, chicken and pork. I think Chef Will has done an outstanding job applying as much pork as possible in different ways to one dish – even writing that is a mouthful.
So we started with cocktails, filled our belly with ramen now we need to end with dessert. But, wait, I can’t tell you what they are yet because Chef Will is rolling new ones out this weekend. Although, I hope the espresso creme brûlée makes the cut. Want a sneak peak of the desserts? Check out the Top Restaurant Tour on Saturday as they are the last stop in the Late Night Tripod with fellow theater and late night restaurants Row 14 and Le Grand Bistro.
