Fork’s Chef Terence Feury 2nd Annual Summer Fisherman’s Trip and Dinner

Now this sounds like fun. Bring your Dramamine though just in case.

When I was a kid there was nothing more fun then going fishing with dad, then coming home to eat our catch for the day. So excited that Chef Terence Feury does a fishing trip like this so you too can experience the excitement and joy like that.

PHILADELPHIA, PA – On Saturday, July 17, Chef Terence Feury of Old City’s acclaimed Fork (306 Market Street, 215-625-9425) will host his second-annual Summer Fisherman’s Trip and Dinner. Working collaboratively with fishmonger Anthony McCarthy, Chef Feury will take guests on a chartered fishing expedition that leaves from Atlantic City, New Jersey; and in the evening, he and his guests return to Fork, where he prepares and serves the day’s catch as the freshest seafood feast in Philadelphia. “Our annual Summer Fisherman’s Dinner is the ideal opportunity for diners to follow their food from the ocean to their plate,” says Chef Feury. “There is no better way to spend a beautiful summer Saturday than catching black bass in the Atlantic Ocean, then having it prepared and served by our team at Fork.” Reservations are required for this very special day and can be made by calling (215) 625-9425. The cost is $200 per person (excluding tax and gratuity) which includes an 8 a.m. breakfast at Fork:etc., transportation to Atlantic City, the fishing trip, scheduled to leave port at 9:30 a.m. (including equipment and bait), return transportation, lunch and a special dinner at Fork beginning at 7 p.m. (excluding beverages, tax and gratuity). Additional diners may be added for $50 (excluding beverages, tax and gratuity). Last year’s Summer Fisherman’s Trip and Dinner was such a success that it landed on the front page of The Philadelphia Inquirer, where attendee and food writer Rick Nichols outlined the entire day, from leaving port at in the morning to dolphins leaping beside the boat to the delightful catch of black bass and one sizable fluke, which Chef Feury expertly prepared for dinner. Owned by Ellen Yin and Roberto Sella, Fork has been a fixture in Old City for 13 years and has been featured in USA Today, The New York Times, Travel and Leisure, Gourmet, Food & Wine, Esquire and other prestigious publications. Philadelphia Magazine has recognized Fork with 11 “Best of Philly” awards, including: “Best Wine List, Value,” “Best Brunch Spot,” “Best Lunch Spot” and “Best Late Night Dining.”
In a recent “Three Bell: Excellent” review, The Philadelphia Inquirer gushed, “few restaurants in town right now can match Fork for fine dining value, given the vibrantly crafted flavors,” and added that Chef Feury and his team “deliver vividly flavored, hand-crafted delights on every dish.” Fork and Fork:etc., the adjacent gourmet take-out and casual dining cafe, are located in Philadelphia’s bustling Old City, the region’s most eclectic mix of one-of-a-kind retailers, restaurants and centers for the arts. Its village-like vibe makes any stroll more than a shopping trip; no wonder National Geographic Traveler recently referred to Old City as “arguably the liveliest urban neighborhood between SoHo and South Beach.” For more information about the Summer Fisherman’s Trip and Dinner, please call Fork at (215) 625-9425, visit www.forkrestaurant.com and follow them on Twitter @ForkRestaurant.
