Market Street and downtown patrons will get a new eatery option later this week. Fork & Pie Bar will open this Friday, at 811 Market Street. The restaurant will feature lunch, dinner and dessert pies with savory and sweet menu options.
The concept was created by co-owners Michael Robinson and Jennifer Rintelman. All menu items are made from scratch, and the soon-to-be famous element is the irresistible house crust made daily at Fork & Pie Bar. Local ingredients used in the pies include produce from Crabtree Farms, Sweetwater Cheeses, Link 41 sausages, Velo coffee, Alchemy Spice, Pure Soda Works, Signal Mountain Farms, Full Circle Farms, and Eagle’s Nest Ranch.
Mr. Robinson said, “Everyone loves pie. Typically, if you’re not a cake fan, you love pie. And if you love cake, you typically love pie too. We thought ‘How great would it be to have a place where pie is every option on the menu?”
The owners hope to add a new, modern twist to the American tradition. Mr. Robinson is also the co-owner of Brewhaus German restaurant located on the North Shore.
The restaurant will focus on creating a dining experience for any hour of the day: brunch, lunch, dinner and dessert. Beer and liquor will be available, as well as soft drinks and standard pie drink of choice: milk. Catering for events will also be available. Operating hours are Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m.-9 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m.-11 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Fork & Pie Bar will open Friday, with normal hours. It will have a ribbon cutting sometime in the coming weeks.
