I was recently asked, what makes Silver Fork special? It’s undoubtedly, one of the most important restaurants in the area. The effortless and relaxed, but flawlessly charming style of service is a perfect fit for the setting. Their new Manchester location, inside the old Mark Skinner Library in the heart of Manchester Village is absolutely stunning—mid-century décor with comfortable space that’s aglow in natural light. Beyond expansive windows, the upstairs bar pictured above has a long dining bar that offers intimate dining possibilities.
Silver Fork is a fine-dining restaurant with extraordinary attention to detail. Through the sharply focused culinary lens of award-winning Chef Mark French lies his remarkable ability to coax out the intrinsic natural flavors of local and seasonal ingredients. Mark’s dishes draw on global influences that blend beautifully with this quintessential New England town of Manchester.
The menu enriches the senses, our favorite first-course dishes—beef tartare, duck eggroll, and lump crab salad are absolutely delicious! The wiener schnitzel is outstanding—our server told us that a couple from Austria said it was “just as good as home.” And, we agree! The rack of lamb, Maryland crab cakes and slow roasted brisket are among our favorites, and our guests too.
Owner, Melody French and Sommelier, Olivia Stoehr have crafted a well-balanced wine list with recent upscale wine selections that complement the always popular regular wine list. Melody and Olivia have adroitly focused on matching tastes and flavors on the menu that share the chef’s palate making wine selection far easier and less intimidating.
Kay joins me in thanking both Melody and Olivia for the special attention shown to all our Pond Mountain Inn guests.
