Something new and fresh is always in season at Spork. With a seasonal ingredient driven menu, their food, beer, wine, and cocktails are developed and implemented, first and foremost, by what they are able to source at its peak.

They in-house grain mill and bake their own breads, ferment and pickle their own vegetables, hand craft a full line of pastas, provide house-cured meats, and produce a full range of pastries.
