Great drinks, friendly service and amazing hours, but unless you’re a little inebriated the food wasn’t super memorable.
The I-Like-to-be-Wrapped-Up-in-All-the-Details Version:
Last weekend I arrived close to midnight in Los Angeles and left the restaurant picking to my sister. With limited options at that hour, we chose Fork. It’s close to my house and is open until 4 am. We arrived and were greeted by a friendly guy behind the counter. Since it wasn’t that busy he offered to take our order at our table (normally you order at the counter). For not being busy, our food did take a while to arrive – nothing crazy, but it wasn’t quick. They did however come out and check on us a number of times – I’m not needy, but I like to know that they haven’t forgotten about me.
The best way to describe this restaurant is comfort food with a Mediterranean twist. I like the location because you are in the middle of the Sunset strip, but you don’t feel like your space is being invaded by all the intoxicated passerby. They also get points for staying open until 4 am and having happy hour until 9 pm (unheard of!).
What we ate/drank:
- Blackberry martini ($16)
- Le Grand Formage ($12)
- Fork Burger ($15)
- Mac and cheese ($10)
- Baklava Cheesecake ($10)
- Seasonal fruit cobbler ($10)
This was not good at all – definitely the worst dish of the night – even worse that the overcooked wings. The crust was doughy and the sauce had a very weird taste to it. I love cobblers, but this is one I will not be trying again.If you are in the area and looking for a late night meal, this isn’t bad, but I would stick to the grilled cheese, burger and baklava cheesecake. However, I wouldn’t go out of my way to try it.
