Profile Last Updated: February 13, 2009
Chef and co-owner Corey Sullivan of Twisted Fork has said that he wants to feed people “French comfort food.” People are eating it up. The seasoned chef is the former owner of the award-winning Wood Restaurant in the busy ski resort town of Fernie. This is his first Vancouver establishment, and within a few weeks of opening it was creating a positive buzz.
A Gourmand’s Delight
The menu is innovative and playful, if simple. Items are divided up into samplers of No Forks, which could be a cheese plate or perhaps a tasting platter. Appetizers are Small Forks, soups are Spoons and main courses are called Big Forks. The prices are pretty good considering the quality. The most expensive entree is $23. Appetizers are about $5 to $10. Items include crab cakes with red pepper coulis and avocado salsa, gruyere onion tarts with pear-walnut chutney, and perfect and warm, homemade sourdough bread. Sample entrees are pan-seared trout, breast of duck and Cornish game hen. Everything including the pickles is made in-house. A special chef’s tasting menu changes every week. It costs $25 before 7p.m. and $32 afterwards.
Drink In the Design
Beer and wine all come from local wineries and microbreweries, perfect for sipping while enjoying the warm, contemporary surroundings. This place would be right at home on trendy Main Street. It’s long and narrow with beamed ceilings, a walnut wood bar, ambient hues and artwork by artists and artisans in the Fernie area. There is an open kitchen for those who like to watch all the action.
Tip: Special chef’s tasting menu changes every week.
