Village Voice's Description

The garlicky skirt steak with kimchi rice and a fried egg wobbling on top is only one of many reasons this restaurant has so many devoted fans. The Good Fork's wood-beamed, tight space feels like the inside of a ship (with better food), which is appropriate because it's tucked away in nautical Red Hook. The chef is Korean-American; she deploys Korean flavors with finesse, and
also has a way with New American plates. There's hardly a misstep in the bunch- dumplings are thin-skinned and juicy, filled with pork and chives. The seared crab cake is fat and crabby, and the burger is a beefy wonder.

    A little something for everyone: you can get a textbook roasted chicken, a serious pub burger, homemade pork dumplings, Korean-style steak & eggs, or a Peking duck leg, if you like. [Eater 38 Member]

    Head here for a great Korean-American Brunch. Winner of Best of NYC Critic's choice for best foodie adventure: Redhook, BK.

    Sit in the backroom with the old school turntable and play DJ for a romantic charming dinner.

  • Jason K. on 04/12/13

    The best damn restaurant in Red Hook. Just about dying of pleasure eating the duck and the Korean steak & eggs and drinking the Fiscal Cliff.

    I tend to steer clear of fancy burgers, but The Good Fork's burger doesn't isn't fussy, it's plain delicious.
