New American food can be really variable; for every top-flight eatery, there are ten offering the same old entrees without care for ingredients or preparation. Thankfully, Philadelphia’s Fork is one of the good ones. The menu is updated daily and showcases both high-quality local ingredients and amazing international specialties—a lush dining room perfect for a business meal or a romantic interlude and spectacular service are just some of the keys to this restaurant’s success. Chef Terence Feury has been acclaimed as the best chef in Philadelphia for many years running, and his approach in the kitchen is masterful. Regulars rave over classic dishes like coq au vin, lamb chops, and risotto, as well as the famous fried chicken liver appetizer. The restaurant’s bar also has a widely acclaimed mixologist. The price are on the higher side with entrees around the $40 range, but you can try the cuisine for less during brunch and lunch.
