Put a Cork in It

Put a Cork In It

One too many pints at a few too many Olympic venues has us pining for a proper sit down meal.

To cleanse our palate of overpriced beers, we pulled up a bentwood café chair to a white tableclothed table at Cork & Fin. The name of the new brick-and-beam Gastown restaurant spells out its best offerings—good glasses of wine and well-priced seafood. Anticipating small portions we ordered a feast of scallop ceviche ($12), mussels in a bath of cream, bacon and white wine ($14), Dungeness crab mashed potatoes ($9) and snapper ($13) to share, and shamefully, were too stuffed to finish the generous, delectable spread.

Plenty of fish in the sea, indeed.
