It was the shot heard 'round Park Circle: Cork Bistro had closed suddenly and was immediately reborn as Cannon Bar and Kitchen Trattoria. Gone, more or less, were Cork's Southern-inspired dishes and in their place was Italian bar fare, with an emphasis on small plates and panini. And since Cork did a damned good job at what it did before, the big question was why the unexpected change? While all the details aren't out there yet, the folks at Cork were reportedly given a makeover by the Cooking Channel's Belly Up! show, one of those quick-lube reality TV operations that take failing restaurants and turn them into the personal play toys of a so-called expert. Here's wishing the Cork, er Cannon, team the best. We hope it was the right decision.
