A stylish New American bistro and Old City anchor
Ellen Yin’s elegantly casual New American bistro helped pave the way for Old City’s revival in the mid-1990s.
Ever since, Fork’s consistent output of finely crafted and inventive cuisine has made it a neighborhood classic. With Chef Eli Kulp in the kitchen, Fork has continued to reinvent itself time and time again.
Fork has a variety of menu options including a fixed price menu that offers diners the opportunity to choose from among Chef Kulp’s wealth of creative dishes and customize their own multi-course supper. Fork’s menu changes frequently throughout the year to showcase the region’s finest produce, seafood and meat.
Carb lovers won’t want to miss the bread course showcasing daily-changing house-baked breads paired with unusual house-made butters and cheeses.
Insider Tip: Try the Whole Animal Feasts for Two or More, featuring fish, poultry and game prepared whole and served for two guests to share with seasonal accompaniments.
The restaurant’s hip, stylish and sophisticated interior complements the contemporary menu and makes it a great spot for a business lunch, dinner with friends or a romantic dessert with cocktails.
Lunch is served Wednesday through Friday from 11:30-2 p.m. Dinner is served daily beginning at 5:30 p.m. and brunch is available on Sundays from 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Reservations are strongly recommended. Click the button below to view the full menu and reserve your table.
