Corson Building


5609 Corson Ave. S.,
United States,

Chef Matt Dillon and restaurateur Wylie Bush decided to gut a building in an industrial neighborhood, remodel it, add a storybook garden entrance, and create their "dream restaurant," a rustic communal space where dinners emphasize local products, from the wine down to the mushrooms. Since opening in June of 2008, Corson Building has become known for its multi-course dinners, which feature main dishes like rabbit, fried chicken, and braised pork belly. Diners make reservations without knowing the menu and, in the spirit of family-style dining, essentially agree to share the table and evening.
