Rooney at Corks

New chef de cuisine

Two bits of good news for Cork’s Restaurant at Russian River Vineyards. Most importantly, exec chef Todd Davies tells BiteClub that the threat of bankruptcy for Russian Rivers Vineyards has been staid, and “we will be in business for years to come.”

Secondly, Davies has named Dominique Rooney, grand-daughter of actor Mickey Rooney, as Chef de Cuisine. The former model has done local stints at Sugo in Petaluma and with Mark Malicki at Casino in Bodega, as well as a number of restaurant in Los Angeles. She and Davies are updating the menus and throughout December will feature a variety of crab dishes.
