Fork & Wrench coming soon to Canton

November 30, 2011|By Richard Gorelick | The Baltimore Sun

A new restaurant named Fork & Wrench will open soon in the Canton location where Good Love, and more recently, Pur, used to be.

An industry insider who has been inside told me that Fork & Wrench is like nothing he's ever seen in Baltimore. Co-owner Andy Gruver doesn't deny it. "I don't see any place like this around here," he said. He and Jason Sanchez, formerly of Good Love, have spent the last two years hand-crafting the interior themselves. Gruver called on some of his film industry friends, mostly set designers, to help out with the interior.

Fork & Wrench has taken over the neighboring building, which has been converted into a three-story open space. Here's how the Fork & Wrench Facebook page puts things: "There are hints of a workshop, a linen factory line, a pharmacy, a college science lab, and a savings and loan office scattered thru out the rooms, balconies and courtyards of the space."

Gruver is hoping to have Fork & Wrench open in a few weeks. A vehicle crashed through the facade recently, setting things back.

The chef de cuisine for Fork & Wrench is James Jennings, formerly of form Zola in Washington, D.C.
