Farewell to Fork

Posted by on June 20 at 16:06 PM

Today brings some sad news for Seattle’s restaurant scene: Fork, the swank, stylish, yet miraculously unpretentious Capitol Hill restaurant that opened across from the Harvard Exit cinema this past January will be closing its doors this Friday.

I first heard the news from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, which cites the health problems being navigated by Fork’s owner/chef Scott Simpson as the reason for the abrupt and unfortunate closure. Again, sad, but Fork will be remembered for a remarkable half-year run, during which it pleased virtually all who entered (including The Stranger’s ever-finicky Bethany Jean Clement, whose Fork review can be seen here).

For those who love it or just want to try it before it’s gone, Fork will be serving through this Friday, when dinner will be served from 5:00 pm—10:00 pm, as it will be every night until then. Interested parties should definitely make reservations, as the sudden goodbye will likely bring out the crowds. (Reservations can be made at 325-7400, and Fork can be found at 806 E Roy St.)
