The Good Fork Sets Up Shop in Skylark Bar

The Good Fork, the cozy comfort-food restaurant on Van Brunt Street in Red Hook, was severely damaged during Hurricane Sandy when flooding destroyed its basement and much of the dining room. Right before the storm hit, though, they took over the kitchen at the retro-kitchy Skylark Bar, which opened in May in the former Timboo's space on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 11th Street.

The menu is more bar food-oriented than at the Red Hook restaurant (which has yet to re-open; donations are being accepted here), but it looks equally delicious. Korean-influenced bar snacks include blistered shishito peppers, pulled pork with pickled cucumbers and asian slaw, and pork and chive dumplings. Playing the straight-up comfort food angle are the likes of maple bacon deviled eggs, sticky baked sweet & spicy chicken wings, and macaroni and cheese (it's owned by Sohui Kim and husband Ben Schneider, and both their influences are present in every item). 

Times are tough for The Good Fork folks right now, but we thankfully have the opportunity to help support them- and sample one of the most delicious-sounding bar menus in the area at the same time.

This isn't exactly news, as I had a bite to eat there a couple of weeks back. But glad to hear a shout out on here. This is really great bar food...the deviled eggs are divine!

They have been there for quite a few weeks now. Hope they make money to help renovate their restaurant after the storm, love their food

Makes for interesting bar food, that's for sure.

This goes without saying: Support them. You're guaranteed to get some GREAT food out of it. I should really drop by this weekend.

Red Hook needs a ton of help, from the residents of the Red Hook Houses to the local businesses on Van Brunt.

What a terrific and creative idea. Very worthy of support from all of us...

I'm sad they installed that dog of a Jurassic Park pinball machine.
