Chef/Owner Scott Howard and General Manager/Owner Charles Low founded FORK (located at 198 Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, San Anselmo, open T-Sa 5:30p-10p, 415-453-9898) after combining talents and reaching a fork in the road of their personal careers. Scott’s extensive background in both the Bay Area and South Florida restaurant scene motivated him to partner with Charles to do a unique small plate restaurant showcasing local food growers and wonderful wines. Charles Low has management experience in many Bay Area restaurants and has a strong foundation in creating the wine list for FORK. After opening in October 2001 they realized a need to expand the dining room and will open that expansion in May 2003.
The unique flair to the menu at FORK is the wonderful small plate format. The seven course tasting menu provides an array of local influences paired with exceptional wines offering a excellent value. Some of their unique menu items include as follows: Pistachio Crusted Lamb – spinach & raisins, sweet & sour sauce; Grilled Beef Tenderloin – smoked bacon, English peas black trumpet; Duck Confit – baby beet salad, green peppercorn, braised beet greens; and Seared Halibut – brussel sprouts, artichokes, hazelnuts, tarragon cream.
We congratulate Scott and Charles on their new expansion and wish them continued success.
