“…for its 15th birthday, Fork got one of the country’s brightest young culinary talents. .. the restaurant vibes with a new freshness that matches the food.”  - Adam Erace, City Paper

“I loved so many of my meals here, I see for the first time four-bell potential in Fork’s future. “ ” Kulp’s food is just so hauntingly good.”   And with his arrival, Yin has [taken} a 15-year-old citywide favorite and reinvent[ed] it as something even better – current and fresh, yet sophisticated in a grown-up way so many new restaurants just can’t muster.” - Craig LaBan, Philadelphia Inquirer

“The venerable Philadelphia restaurant Fork, a trailblazer in farm-to-table dining 15 years ago, has been made over, to miraculous effect.   …new chef, Eli Kulp…[has] brought with him a huge amount of New York smarts and energy, as well as a newcomer’s starry-eyed delight in the local Pennsylvania provender. It’s a fecund place, and Kulp is gulping it up.” - Betsy Andrews, Saveur
