The Good Fork is the beloved neighborhood restaurant with a serious local following. Set on food-centric Van Brunt Street, this isn't a spot that diners frequent because they happen to be in the area; rather, they seek it out for its global cuisine and romantic vibe. Swapping NYC pretense for pure passion—it’s the dream of a married couple who built it from scratch—Co-owner Ben Schneider designed the space, while his classically trained wife, Chef Sohui Kim, helms the kitchen. Her cuisine emphasizes locality as well as Korean and other international flavors. Seasoned pork dumplings are served with a black vinegar dipping sauce; while scallion pancakes are a staple with their umami wonder. Happiness is a warm bowl of coconut milk-scented mussels.
