Friend and I got to The Third Corner at 1:30 on a Friday. The barroom was empty, so we chose a table there, rather than in the dining room. He ordered a glass of Foxglove Chardonnay; I, a Belgian wheat beer. Both, accompanied by an Olive Sampler and a Cheese Plate, proved to be a delicious way to ease into the weekend. That, complemented by a bowl of the soup du jour, a broth fraught with seafood and veggies, for each of us, was an ample meal. We were granted much attention by both the table captain and the server. An overcharge, discovered and graciously retracted a few days later, didn't dim our enthusiasm for this pleasant neighborhood wine bar/restaurant.
