Happy Friday! For our very first crew highlight, we are putting the spotlight on our awesome server, Isaiah Moore! Isaiah has been part of the Corkbuzz family for 3 years. Isaiah grew up in the Bronx, and currently lives there with his beautiful daughter, Emma. When he isn’t at one of our NYC locations, he is reading and leafing through comics (Cyclops is his favorite Xmen!). We got the scoop on his experience at Corkbuzz below, and if you want to learn more come by Chelsea Market and say hi!
Q: What is your favorite memory at Corkbuzz? A: We were sitting at one of our staff meetings talking about how far the restaurant’s come and our aspirations for it. It was a moment where I realized that I came here needing a job, and a year later I had a career and lifelong friends.
Q: What is your favorite thing about working at Corkbuzz? A: How humble everyone is, and how approachable the people here make wine. Wine education comes first here, and the staff’s number one priority is hospitality. I’ve never felt insecure about asking questions about wine.
Q: And finally, what is your favorite wine? A: 2015 Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina wine, which is an effervescent rosé from the Basque region. It tastes like strawberry lemonade, it’s the most refreshing wine ever.
