Forks and Green was born out of an epiphany. After growing up in North London and spending their entire lives working among the hustle and bustle of the area, the founders of this culinary cottage knew there was something missing. A business trip to Paris sparked a eureka moment as they saw how the Parisians managed to balance business with respite and recreation. The answer was great coffee, good company, fresco style and a brasserie style location to simply sink into a seat and eat.
Their return to the West Green area led them to the archives in which they found that this parish in particular had undergone several dramatic changes in its thousands of years of existence. It made perfect poetic sense to bring their lightbulb moment to life here where disruption is in the DNA and the drama of the city is just a stone’s throw away. Here of all places the people would appreciate a tranquil spot serving tasty treats which they could call a second home.
Forks and Green was born and the concept was clear – let’s keep it simple and saliva-inducingly delicious!
