Owner David Byers upped Fiddlehead Cafe's focus on beer, amassed a bigger beverage program than everyone on the block combined, and reopened in February under the new name of Fork. A better name might have been Glass: With nearly 200 beers and about 300 wines, Fork’s epic booze book loudly calls out “shotgun” while relegating the food menu to riding bitch. With so much drinking to do here, it’s convenient to have food like a solid burger around, but the quality of the food will do little to make Fork a destination. Which is why you’re better off treating it as a low-key stop for a few sessions of Beer Styles 101 instead.
