Weland Out, Hutter In at Cork Wine Bar

Robert Weland is parting ways with Cork Wine Bar, and the Logan Circle neighborhood favorite is promoting Kristin Hutter of Cork Market to take his place.

Hutter will develop a a new spring menu along with former Cork chef Ron Tanaka, who is returning to the restaurant temporarily to help with the transition, according to a press release from the restaurant. Tanaka's at work on his own place, Thally, which is set to open this summer.

Also striking out on his own — Weland. The press release says he's pursuing other project, including a possible joint venture with Cork owners Diane Gross and Khalid Pitts. Tom Sietsema checked in with the chef during his weekly chat — he'll be traveling to Italy before he returns to his other options.
