Our Restaurant

Cork & Gabel, a restaurant fusion of Irish, Italian, and German cuisine, is slated to open in Detroit's Corktown district.  Cork & Gabel’s name is derived from a combination of gabel, the German word for fork, and cork, a nod to the restaurant’s location in Corktown.  The idea for this fusion stems from our Executive Chef Matthew McGrail's, Irish and Italian hertiage and owner Joe Mifsud passion for German food.


About Our Food

One of our primary focuses for our food will be fresh locally sourced ingredients.  We will be sourcing seasonal produce from The Wojcik Farm in Tecumseh, MI.  The sausages served in some of our dishes will be sourced from Corridor Sausage Company in Detroit.  Our appetizer, entree, and dessert menu consists of unique and original recipes created by our executive chef.  Cork & Gabel’s goal is to create a mixture of comfort food that everyone can enjoy, but also reaches gourmet quality
