Fork Restaurant Celebrates 25 Years in Old City

Acclaimed Philadelphia restaurant Fork celebrates an amazing milestone this year – its silver anniversary! I was scrolling through my email and Open Table called this out. I thought to myself how truly remarkable that is. Restaurants come and go, but Fork has been a stalwart in Old City for 25 years!

According to its website…

Fork has celebrated hyper-seasonal, ingredient-driven contemporary American cuisine since 1997. Fork is a timeless and thriving restaurant that continues to push the envelope of dining in Philadelphia. The restaurant was named by Esquire as one of 100 Restaurants America Can’t Afford to Lose and one of The Best Classic Restaurants in Pennsylvania by Food & Wine. 

Fork, owned by Restaurateur Ellen Yin, has received high ratings from the press, including four bells from Craig LaBan, and is a 4-time semifinalist for the James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Restaurant. Ellen has been a finalist for James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Restaurateur in 2018, 2019, and 2022, among several other accolades.
