Fork is Celebrating Its 20th Year in Business with a Special Anniversary Menu!
On Sunday, October 15, Old City’s landmark Fork restaurant will celebrate its 20th year in Philadelphia, an enviable milestone in one of the brightest culinary towns in America. To commemorate the occasion, Executive Chef John Patterson will feature a special Anniversary Menu featuring 20 Tastes of Fork. “Instead of trying to recreate the memory of Fork’s former talented chefs and proud alumni, we want this menu to represent the future and Fork’s ongoing commitment to collaboration, seasonality and sustainability,” says Patterson. 20 Tastes of Fork is a limited menu, with only 20 served per night, and will be available for $100 per person starting on Monday, October 16 and ending on Friday, November 17. Reservations are suggested.
In addition, owners Ellen Yin and Roberto Sella will pay tribute to the restaurant’s 20th anniversary all monthlong beginning with an intimate Open House from 12 noon until 4 p.m. on Sunday, October 15 to commemorate the date when Fork first opened its doors in 1997. The festive party will be open to Fork’s most loyal patrons and long-time supporters, featuring food and drink samplings honoring the boundary-pushing restaurant’s 20 years serving the Old City neighborhood. As a way to honor Fork’s longevity and impact on the hospitality industry in Philadelphia, Yin will also host a private alumni gathering on Sunday, October 1 to recognize the many talented current and past front- and back-of-house team who have gone on to contribute to the city’s evolving food scene.
“As we reach this exciting anniversary, we want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped Fork continue to innovate with food, while remaining one of the best restaurants in Philadelphia,” says Yin. “Fork has grown beyond Roberto’s and my original dream of being a neighborhood bistro. The evolution of Fork into what it is today would not be possible without the countless hours dedicated by our team. We’ve also been lucky enough to have the support of amazing farmers, producers, artisans and purveyors in the Delaware Valley whose commitment to excellence helps frame our story.”
In further celebration of their 20th anniversary, Fork will be giving away a pair of complimentary tickets for Outstanding in the Field on Saturday, September 23 at Plowshare Farms in Pipersville, PA. The sold-out, multi-course dinner is one of the most prestigious reservations in the country, and the restaurant will be raffling these hard-to-find tickets on their social media channels fromWednesday, September 20 through Friday, September 22.
