Welcome to North Fork!

American accented comfort food and wine in a modern-rustic setting.
Our restaurant, located on on the corner of Christopher and Bedford Streets in historic West Village is borne out of our love of hospitality, sense of community and affinity for history. Exposed brick walls, reclaimed barn woods, a live-edge wood oak bar, large windows and rustic accents re-create a sense of tradition and sustainability.

“Our name is inspired by the North Fork region of Eastern Long Island and reflects a slow-paced way of life where neighbors know each other, shop at local farms and vineyards and often share meals over familiar conversations.
We support local farms and small-batch produced food. As a commitment to sustainability and supporting local farms, we strive to source as much local produce as possible.

Lovely warm rustic setting & very buzzy atmosphere on a Saturday night. Friendly service. Super fresh delicious, locally sourced food...great goat cheese watercress beet salad (large portion, easily shared!) and fresh local Atlantic sea bass over couscous! Sautéed chicken was recommended as well & looked delicious too! Large portions, very reasonably priced, & also nice selection of well-priced wines by the glass. Love their commitment to sustainability & supporting local farms!

Whoever is doing the cooking REALLY knows what he/she is doing! We had the brussel sprouts, the burger, and what down South would be called smothered chicken. So flavorful! Unafraid of pepper! Yum! Please go there a.s.a.p. and make sure they stay in business. PS: you get a 10% discount if you show them your tix for the Lucille Lortel Theatre, literally across the street.

We loved the ambience and the soundtrack, and service was good considering the place was full and there only appeared to be one server... but the food was not good (we sent one dish back, and the other dishes were fairly disappointing), and the check was rather expensive.

The duck and short ribs were dry and not that well seasoned. The side dishes were bland. The service was very good. Due to our dissatisfaction we got a free dessert which was a piece of Kalua chocolate cake which was just ok.
Prices were on the high side so overall I was pretty disappointed. Perhaps other items on the menu were better. Small restaurant and tables were close together. Or waiter was very attentive and apologetic .

Nice people and nice food but drinks were poor and no WiFi. The milk that came with the tea was off and the coffee was not good. OJ came out of a carton and was not fresh. I don’t think that is good enough.

The service was extremely slow, when the food came out it was either overcooked or extremely mediocre, and the Bloody Mary I ordered just tasted like pickle juice. Would not recommend to others.

We wanted to try this new place in the West Village after reading about it in Infatuation and I have to say it is a welcome new addition to the neighborhood. Upon arrival, we were taken to our reserved table right away by a very friendly server. I really wanted to try the burger and it was delightful. The meat was of excellent quality, topped with very tasty camembert cheese and savory fingerlings. Definitely a must for any burger lover and one of the best in the city.
Our server mentioned that all the desserts were handmade in the restaurant and we ordered the apple pie. The crust was perfectly done and the combination of flavors subtle and delicious. It was one of the best apple pie I have had. I talked about our dinner to my sister and her husband and they're taking us back next week!

We were looking for a last minute meal in the West Village and were pleasantly surprised by the experience that we had at North Fork! I didn't realize the restaurant was new, but they seem to have hit their groove with the energy and how bust they were.
Meat heavy menu was quite exceptional although there were a few vegetarian options. We had the meat plate that had a good spread of spicy and flavorful sliced meats, followed by the spare rib and shrimp risotto. Comment on the spare rib - it was so aromatic and flavorful that we asked our server, who mentioned that the meat is braised and roasted for over 4 hours! It shows in the complexity of the dish as well as the fall off the bone meat. Didn't even need a knife.
We finished with the Kahlua chocolate cake that was a secret recipe apparently, and was divine.
Cocktails were seasonal and quite interesting as well.

Highly recommend for a great dining and drink experience in the West Village! Great addition...

I will preface this by saying I realize North Fork is relatively new and, likely, still making adjustments and going through growing pains, but that does not completely account for the comedy of errors that was my recent dining experience.
The food was generally hit or miss. We ordered a couple of starters, the cheese and charcuterie board as well as the polenta cakes. The one we received, (more on that in a minute), was the charcuterie board and it was middle of the road...at best. The two salamis were decent, if a little bland, but the shaved meats included were of the caliber of lunch meat mom used to make my sandwiches with. They were a huge letdown. My companion confirmed my sentiment, independent of my opinion.
The short rib was also decent, nothing to write home about but certainly tender, melted off the bone and I would say was 4 out of 5. Its accompaniments were bland however and lacked much imagination beyond a very pure presentation of the primary ingredients. That is to say, it tasted like something i would make at home.
Speaking of something I would make at home, we also had the cauliflower crusted pie. This also was decent, but not worth the effort of a night out when it could be fundamentally reproduced at home. Similar to the accompaniments of the short rib, it was relatively vanilla with little more flavor than its raw ingredients, 3 out of 5.
The service is where things really fell off for us. From forgetting our polenta cakes, not bringing us table settings, not checking on our satisfaction when the food came out and never really engaging at all, our server really felt green and first night on the job...maybe she was, for which, things can be chalked up to inexperience.

Absolutely terrible food. Could get better at a below average 24/7 gas station.

Horrible does not begin to describe our dining experience. We were smashed in a corner practically on top of the other two top in the restaurant. We actually joked with the other couple that we we’re now a four top.

As for the food, the beet salad was inedible, with red beets that were crunchy and undercooked, and lettuce that was just under dressed. While the diver scallops were over cooked and slightly chewy.

The Cauliflower pizza was nothing short of disgusting. Undercooked to the extent that the dough was sticky. Even the server stated it looked raw. In the 12 years I have been with my partner he has never sent a dish back ... this meal was the first.

The fish was nothing short of plain and unseasoned. it was on a bed of couscous that had spice - but was obviously seasoned after the fact instead of while it was being prepared.

The only positive - if one can see a positive - is that the server did not charge us for the salad or the pizza ...

I wish this restaurant luck, but needless to say we will never return.

A hidden gem in the West Village that just opened! The energy, decor, ambience and food were superb! . It’s BYOB temporarily and actually made it better as there is a wine store 3 doors down.
Tried the burger and duck. Excellently made and our server mentioned most ingredients are locally sourced.

Would definitely go back to try the wild boar polenta and frogs legs, as I don’t see it on enough menus.

We waited what seemed a long time for the food. No bread basket was offered for brunch. Cappuccino machine wasn’t working. Food itself was delicious.

Poor service. Poor management. Poor food. An embarrassment to the North Fork region of Long Island. At first I thought they are getting their kinks out since they just opened. But there is no excuse for bad food. Owners have to get their act together if they want to survive.
