Old City’s Fork is showing off its creativity on Wednesday nights. Every Wednesday, chef de cuisine John Patterson, pastry chef Samantha Kincaid and the entire Fork team are creating special one-night-only menus for $55 per person.
Each week’s menu is guided by a theme or central ingredient; Chef Patterson will change the focus of the menu so that no two meals are ever alike. Tonight’s menu is being described as “fun shore/picnic kind of dream menu.”
The James Beard Awards were held in Chicago last night and Philadelphia will have to stick with boasting about Michael Solomonov and Steve Cook’s double victory at last week’s James Beard Awards for Broadcast and Journalism. Solomonov did not win for Outstanding Chef and the other Philadelphia’s chefs and restaurateurs up for awards were shut out.
On the other hand it was quite the victory to see chef Eli Kulp and the Fork/High Street team at the awards. Kulp was paralyzed in last year’s Amtrak 188 accident but was in Chicago and looking dapper for the awards ceremony.
