Fork & Knife in Boca Raton Serves Modern Takes on American Classics
The menu is chock-full of classic comfort dishes -- it's perfect for those with a self-induced stimulated appetite.
Chicken and Waffles ($25)
While lighter options are available, the signature dishes are on the heavier side. The chicken and waffles ($25) is all about fried stuff and starch. It combines fried chicken, a waffle, sweet potato fries, maple syrup, and sriracha.
The Detroit Coney Dogs ($10) are inspired by the famous hot dogs of the Motor City's Lafayette Coney Island. Two grilled dogs are topped with homemade Coney sauce, mustard, and onions and served on steamed buns with hand-cut fries.
"Detroit Coney Dogs are the equivalent of the cheese steaks in Philly," says co-owner Scott Niskar. "Everyone has their favorite Coney. It's really about the sauce, a beanless chili. Ours is from Lafayette; we modeled the sauce after theirs."
The F&K Signature Burger ($14)
The F&K Signature Burger is a ten-ounce patty topped with cheddar cheese, a fried egg, crispy onion straws, bacon jam, and F&K burger sauce between a toasted challah bun with hand-cut fries ($14).
The selection of signature fries is another main draw. The spot offers freshly cut fries with toppings like salt and vinegar ($5), bacon gravy ($5), Parmesan and truffle oil ($6), and Gorgonzola and balsamic ($6).
