Okin's Cork & Cleaver to Open This Week

Posted By on Mon, Apr 8, 2013 at 10:57 AM


Chef-partners Brian Okin and Adam Bostwick will open Cork & Cleaver (8130 Broadview Rd., 440-627-6449), a Modern American restaurant in Broadview Heights, this Wednesday, April 10. We first reported on the venture in early March.

"It's been pretty stressful, but I'm excited," Okin reports.

The menu features about 20 items, including some classic Okin and Bostwick dishes. Fans might recognize the seared scallop and polenta starter, Verve fries, and fried chicken dinner. Entrée prices are largely in the $16 to $19 range.

Okin says that he was fortunate to hook up with a local farmer who will supply him with pork and lamb products. A family-owned farm will soon begin pumping out local produce.

One menu item in particular has Okin excited.

"It's The Board, which is a twist on the typical charcuterie board that you get at restaurants," he says. "It has bone marrow with ramp pesto, foie gras with mostardo, and pork belly with jalapeno jam. And to top it off, instead of using regular crostini I'm deep frying them in lard."

The next Dinner in the Dark event will take place at Cork & Cleaver on Monday, April 15.
