Led by Chef Jonathan Blackford, Fork & Knife aims to present a menu of progressive, modern dishes that are meant to be enjoyed at home. Serving as an extension of the home kitchen, the concept presents globally inspired dishes that focus on fresh ingredients and bold flavors while presenting an innovative experience. Fork & Knife’s honest approach to cooking comes through in grab-and-go items and thoughtfully prepared menus meant to satisfy a range of tastes.
Partnering with Chef Blackford to present the concept is Doug Garn, best known as President and CEO of Quest Software in 2005. When the company was sold to Dell in 2012 for 2.4 billion, it freed Garn to focus on several personal investments and ventures, including the opening of A Restaurant. It was there that he, along with wife, Julie Garn, created a tremendous working relationship with Chef Blackford – and the team has reunited to bring its first restaurant concept together to fruition with Fork & Knife. Overseeing all design and non-food merchandising for the concept is Chef Blackford’s wife, Kristi, who will also assist in-house regularly.
Fork & Knife is expected to open October 1, 2020 and will be located at 401 E. 17th Street, Suite A2, in Costa Mesa. For more information about the restaurant menu, hours and reservations, please visit http://forkandknifecm.
