"Tacos are delicious here. Goat, pulled pork, all of them. Their chips are addictive. Great decor, fun, and a huge mezcal collection."

The Fork & Wrench bar and dining room in Fell’s Prospect, Baltimore offers glocaly sourced, craft made fare and libations. The owners worked for two years to design and hand build the interior space themselves with the goal of evoking the 20’s, 30,s and 40’s working class. There are hints of a workshop, a linen factory line, a pharmacy, a college science lab, and a savings and loan office scattered thru out the rooms, balconies and courtyards of the space. It is their intent to combine the dive bar and 4-star attitudes into one space for the benefit of the “modern day” working class. The kitchen offers craft made fare using all local produce and meats when available. They use old recipes and new techniques (and vice-versa) with global influences to arm their ever-changing menu. We hope you enjoy!

"Love the space, great vibe and looks nothing like the former establishments. Everything was very seasonal and fresh. Tried the delicate hamachi crudo for a 1st course. Simple and fresh. Then I went with the stuffed veal, which was presented like a roll. Nice crunch outside and the filling, almost like my favorite death pudding, scrapple, kept it moist. Also had the golden and crunchy fried calamari as a shared starter and it was very tasty.. love this place for brunch too."

"Very old school, and we loved it that way. Views are spectacular. People should understand that looking from Manhattan is great but looking towards Manhattan is even better. Older crowd, a place for graduations, big celebrations, for parents to have formality and kids to have experience of how fine dining used to be (and that isn't a bad thing). Tried several things and all were spectacular. Food is frills for seasonality, ingredients and preparation with good portions; technique shines. APPS - Seafood duet (buttery scallops and tuna tartare), rabbit loin-fluffy ricotta dumplings-butternut squash. MAINS - a peppery, thick and perfectly cooked 16oz strip steak with bone marrow-cheese potatoes (decadent); earthy and filling mushroom wellington; juicy rack of CO lamb. I had the cheese selection for dessert and the pomme tartines were loved. Just a fantastic place that rebounded from Sandy to its glory."

"had brunch there, didn't go with anything too crazy. roasted beet salad with shredded cheese, and the fried hazelnuts were a nice texture item. Also had a nice sized serving of cheddar grits.
wife went with house made granola, house made dried fruit and yogurt with honey. Fresh and filling.
have been there twice in a month, and it is totally a good go to on H street"

"Went there last week and we got the early pre-theater meal. Essentially it is 2 courses and dessert is free. We chose the cheesy and fresh Caesar salad, which was plated very cool. Also went with the onion soup, a must in a French spot. Hot and savory. Both of us got the unbelieveable fried chicken, with a crunch that was just divine. Dessert, she had a flawless crème brulée and I had a candy bay dessert that hit a chord for the chocolate lover. Service was great, and I love the atmosphere. A great one!"
