Fork Restaurant Review

: Executive chef John Patterson carries on the strong culinary precedent set by Fork chef-partner Eli Kulp. The meal might begin with smoked shrimp carpaccio, whipped rabbit or venison tartare, continuing with "Peking style" celery root, turbot en papillote or dry-aged steak for two. The signature creative American fare also emphasizes house-made pastas. Potato gnocchi with spiced lamb rag├╣ are not to be missed. Indulge in homey desserts such as blackberry polenta or pineapple bread pudding with buttermilk, juniper and sour cream ice cream. The wine list emphasizes American pours designed to complement the locally sourced cuisine. Designer Marguerite Rodgers' muted color scheme of greens and golds has been amplified by a pair of colorful murals of trees --- accomplished while leaving intact the historically certified building's high ceilings and cast-iron columns. The lounge area at the front, with its concrete bar, is popular with singles as well as couples. The service is usually topnotch.
