1. Cork Wine and Tapas
90 Front Street, New Bedford, MA
Cork’s innovative menu features both tapas (a variety of appetizers) and full entrees that are unlike any other food selection around. The menu is often changed to reflect exciting new options and always focused on fine cuisine. While Cork may be quite artistic with its culinary splendors, their menu has plenty of suitable options for a variety of pallets.

The heavy stonework and classic New England craftsmanship make for a spacy interior and a beautiful setting for your special night out.
