Review: ForkHeartKnife

A lovely addition to the growing scene on Main Street, is ForkHeartKnife, a homey and tiny storefront restaurant, only open on select days of the week and serving some delicious grub.

They are only open typically on Thursdays and Fridays for dinner and brunch on Sundays. Each day, their menu is different, so check their blog and their facebook page for the most recent menu. The menu always features local, fresh, and interesting ingredients cooked in unique ways. I always drool when they post their menu. It is scribbled elegantly on a long piece of paper and posted on their wall. For example, this is their menu for tonight!

A few other things to remember: They only accept cash, you can BYOB, and get there early - they often run out of food cause people are eating it all up!

I had dinner there a few months ago just after they opened, and I don't remember the specifics, but we enjoyed a delicious stuffed pepper full of a fish and veggie combination that was amazing, a cold soup made with avocado, and a yummy lime sugar cookie for desert.

Last Sunday I ventured down the two blocks from my house to enjoy their brunch. They had several 'Blue Oven Strata's' on the menu, one with bacon and the other with veggies. Blue Oven means it was made with Blue Oven Bakery's bread. Justin had the bacon, carmelized onion, thyme, swiss, and Parmesan strata, and I had the veggie which included artichokes, black olives, onions, green peppers, feta, and mozzarella cheese. They were both to-die-for delicious. I had never thought to make an eggy type of casserole using bread as a foundation and a topper. I wish I had remembered to take pictures for you so you could see it's awesomeness.

On the side we ordered the roasted red potatoes tossed in 'bravas spice' (not too sure what it was) and topped with a dollop of sour cream. These were a nice touch to the brunch. A little bit of kick, with a sour cream cooler was delicious. My only complaint was that they were a bit too salty.

I am a big fan of this place, and also the short walk from my house to get there. Their creativity and homey atmosphere is so inviting, and the food is always good.
