An escapist small-plates restaurant inspired by the rustic coasts of France, Italy, and the namesake Mediterranean island that lies between them. An escapist small-plates restaurant inspired by the rustic coasts of France, Italy, and the namesake Mediterranean island that lies between them.

The island of Corsica is the perfect muse: a jagged snow-capped mountain jutting from the Mediterranean surrounded with destination beaches. Rustic & simple-- it's a convertible-top-down on the way to a never-ending aperitivo vibe.

Drawing from the essence of both Ligurian good-for-the-soul food and the Provençal traditions of Southern France - our menu is a celebration of boldness and nostalgia. A touch of acid, sprinkle of crunchy salt with a backbone of umami provides the foundation for every dish’s personality. Led by James Beard award-winning Chef, Patrick Connolly & Executive Chef Kelly Patton the menu features various small plates of vegetables and meats cooked over an open-flame robata grill, baked pastas, classic apéro, and aperitivi snacks.

Patrick and Kelly have developed a menu that is both seasonal and locally reflective. Evocative of the duality of Corsican terroir, both coastal and mountainous. From the braises and stews of the high mountains, to the simply prepared and executed seafood of the coastlines, Corsica’s menu is as diverse and transportive as the landscape itself.

WINE &
BEVERAGE

Corsica P Freeze

We offer an extensive selection from Corsica and Europe, focusing on coastal regions. We serve ~30 wines by the glass and approximately 200 by the bottle, spanning countless regions. We are constantly expanding and refining our wine offerings.

We believe that wine is a condiment for food. The wine list at Corsica offers a robust selection of European wines that are crafted by farmers, not factories. Featuring rare wines from Corsica along with other Mediterranean territories, the list emphasizes wines that are as ingredient-driven as the food menu. Created by Beverage Director Emily Nevin-Giannini and CCO Gretchen Thomas, the award-winning team behind Barcelona Wine Bar’s wine & drinks program, that are devoted hunters of delicious wines that have approachable and real value, resulting in a 200+ bottle list of exceptional wines, three-quarters of which are priced under $75/bottle. The cocktails are timeless, and heavily influenced by the amaro, aperitivo and spritz culture of the Mediterranean. Like the wines, the cocktails are intentionally crafted to compliment the food - leaning into crisp acidity, lower alcohol components, savory bitters and simple, but impactful garnishes. Emily and Gretchen take a light-handed approach to sweetness, creating drinks that are worthy of multiple rounds.
