A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Saturday at Cork Tree Tavern, the upscale wine bar that serves as a companion business to Cole’s Public House. Both are located at the corner of Park Avenue and South Main Street. Here, Amherst mayor Mark Costilow and building owner Paul Bires cut the ribbon to mark the tavern’s grand opening. Then Costilow and Lorain County Chamber of Commerce president Tony Gallo pose with chef Robby Lucas’ family.
