About John Patterson and Fork...Under Chef John Patterson, Fork was elevated to the rarefied ranks of “Four Bells: Superior” restaurants thanks to a recent re-review from The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Craig LaBan. “It never ceases to amaze me how deftly Fork defies conventional expectations...[it] is infinitely more surprising, sophisticated, and relevant than the pleasant bistro Ellen Yin cofounded in 1997...Fork has matured into one of the most compellingly evolved special-occasion dining experiences in Philadelphia today,” he wrote. The restaurant was a semi-finalist for the James Beard Award for “Outstanding Restaurant” in 2014, 2015 and 2016. Philadelphia magazine gushed over Fork’s “old-school excellence,” and in 2015, Co-Owner Eli Kulp was named Eater Philadelphia’s Chef of the Year. In 2014, he and Pastry Chef Samantha Kincaid were named among Food & Wine’s “Best New Chefs” and “Best New Pastry Chefs,” making Fork the only restaurant in the country to boast winners in both categories.About John Patterson and Fork...Under Chef John Patterson, Fork was elevated to the rarefied ranks of “Four Bells: Superior” restaurants thanks to a recent re-review from The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Craig LaBan. “It never ceases to amaze me how deftly Fork defies conventional expectations...[it] is infinitely more surprising, sophisticated, and relevant than the pleasant bistro Ellen Yin cofounded in 1997...Fork has matured into one of the most compellingly evolved special-occasion dining experiences in Philadelphia today,” he wrote.
