A more casual sister restaurant to next-door Fork Bistro, this Old City café is part sit-down dining, with the few tables overlooking Market Street, and part carry-out counter. The food at both components focuses on artisanal and health-conscious choices. A charcuterie and well-stocked spice rack take up one wall, with packaged gourmet items like specialty coffees and sauces. At weekly “Bistro Wednesday” dinners, the big, central communal table opens for diners to eat and chat over lighter staples of Fork’s menu: a variety of cured meats for sandwich-building, salmon smoked in-house, cheeses, freshly baked breads and pizzas, and salads.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
