CHESAPEAKE, Va. – (September 14, 2021) – Summit Pointe Realty, LLC is pleased to announce that M&M Hospitality Group has leased 10,148 square feet of signature restaurant space at Summit Pointe.
It’s newest offering, Cork & Bull, will be a true American chophouse and gathering place for thick, succulent cuts of prime, dry-aged Hereford beef. The menu will also include seafood and raw bar specialties from the Eastern Shore, Chesapeake Bay and other regional providers in addition to fresh Maine lobster.

M&M Hospitality Group is well known for its award-winning restaurants. The company, owned by Brian and Teresa Mullins, has brought four distinctive restaurants to the region including Vintage Tavern, River Stone Chophouse, Decoys Seafood and Amedeo’s Ristorante in Suffolk. The company also opened Bennett’s Creek Marina adjacent to Decoys Seafood and Amedeo’s Bakery. The new restaurant will be its first in Chesapeake.
Cork & Bull, located at 600 Belaire Avenue, will occupy a dramatic space in the vibrant Mosaic quarter of Summit Pointe, which is currently under construction. This latest addition includes $68 million of new construction with 270 luxury apartments, restaurants, shops and a public parking garage.

The street-level space will include a colonnade with a plaza and outdoor dining.
