The Sunset Strip restaurant scene continues to churn along, with longtime names closing up shop while other big players have yet to arrive. One new nondescript name to add to the list: Fork, which has only just opened on the eastern reaches of the Strip.
The recently unveiled Fork takes over the longtime Sushi on Sunset space, which is situated next to the infamous Body Shop club between Sweetzer and Harper. Aiming to be a bit of everything to everyone, Fork keeps insane 7 a.m. to 4 a.m. hours, offering coffee and pastries in the morning, followed by straightforward lunch and dinner options like mac & cheese with bacon, or chicken and feta tacos. This is American comfort food with a Mediterranean backbone, as done by chef Roy Handler (yes, Chelsea Handler’s brother).
Fork also touts itself has having the best, longest happy hour in the area, with daily deals running from 5 p.m. all the way to 4 a.m., including $4 draft beer and $7 glasses of house wine. That’s certainly hard to beat, and would seem unsustainable if not for the, ahem, late night crowds that gather near at least one of the adjacent businesses.
Fork is open daily on Sunset Blvd., with hours from 7 a.m. to 4 a.m.
