MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The Good Fork is the perfect neighborhood restaurant with a serious local following. Located on food-centric Van Brunt Street near the Red Hook Waterfront, this inviting spot swaps New York pretense for pure passion—it’s the dream of a married couple who built the restaurant from scratch, literally. Co-owner Ben Schneider crafted the space, while his classically trained wife, Chef Sohui Kim, helms the kitchen. Her cuisine emphasizes Korean and other global flavors, as well as a commitment to locality. Homemade dumplings are filled with nicely seasoned pork, crisped and served with a black vinegar dipping sauce. Scallion pancakes are a staple with their umami wonder, while true happiness is a warm bowl of the plump coconut milk-scented mussels.
