A mobile food vendor that launched in Jersey City about six years ago has found a permanent home as No Forks Given has officially opened for business inside a Jersey City storefront.
Jersey Digs broke the news last April about the stationary version of No Forks Given. Jersey City’s zoning board approved an application to convert space at 115 Brunswick Street next door to Into The Void Coffee & Antiques and construction began shortly thereafter.
Owned by chef Wyatt Harte, No Forks Given serves what they describe as “comfort food with a worldly twist.” The offerings blend a variety of influences including Korean and Asian flavors, Peruvian cuisine, and American comfort food.
The highlights at No Forks Given’s restaurant include a fried artichoke sandwich with lemon caper herb mayo, arugula, and Calabrian chili honey on a French baguette.
A Banh Mi sandwich with Panko breaded thighs or tofu adorns the menu alongside food truck favorites like their signature Peruvian fried chicken sandwich and Togarashi fries with sriracha mayonnaise, togarashi spice, sesame seeds, and scallions.
The cheesesteak options at the brick-and-mortar version of the restaurant have expanded, with all the sandwiches featuring Pat LaFrieda sliced ribeye served on a Balthazar french roll. Korean, Southern, and Mexican varieties create unique flavors, the latter of which combines Chipotle marinated beef, ají verde, cotija cheese, pickled onions, cilantro, and a house-made cheese sauce.
No Forks Given’s hours during their current soft opening period run from Tuesday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. They can be followed on Instagram at the handle @noforksgivennj.
