Fork on Sunset Didn't Last a Year in West Hollywood

There's no timetable for any sort of return.

It appears that Fork on Sunset has likely given up the ghost (at least for now). A tipster writes in to say that the electricity may well be off inside already, though a quick drive by reveals a room full of untouched furniture. Still, it’s clear that no one’s been home for a little while now.

Word first dropped about Fork back in April, when the plan was to turn the former Sushi on Sunset space into a nearly round-the-clock spot for cheap drinks and easy pub food. Chef Roy Handler was involved in the early going, but eventually moved on under allegedly less-than-amicable circumstances.

Fast forward to now, and there’s only a sign up in the window passively indicating some filming going on inside. However, the company’s social media hasn’t been updated since November, calls to the restaurant ring through to voicemail only, and there’s no indication from the neighborhood that the place has been up and running any time in the past week or so.

A call to ownership did reveal that there were at least potential plans to reopen at some point in the future, though there’s no timetable for that. So, in the meantime, Fork on the Sunset Strip sits, forlorn and waiting.
