Fork in the Market, the last restaurant to open and thus fill out the Roanoke City Market Building, will open to the public tomorrow (Saturday, April 7) at 11 a.m. The restaurant will be open seven days per week and on Friday and Saturday nights will offer late-night pizza purchases from a service window until 3 a.m.
Manager Dan Brown said the restaurant menu will be very similar to those at its sister eateries, Fork in the Alley in South Roanoke and Fork in the City at 6th and Marshall in downtown Roanoke. It will be a little bit smaller, he said, but will still offer brick-oven pizzas, chargrilled burgers, gourmet hot dogs, and a few sandwiches, entrees and salads. Unlike the other two locations, however, FITM will sell pizza by the slice at $3 per slice for cheese and $4.50 per slice for specialty. The slices will be 1/4 of their large pizza. They’ll also have daily pizza specials.
Fork in the Market has an ABC license already and will serve at the bar until 2 a.m. on the weekends. The service window, which faces Salem Avenue, will be open from midnight until 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, offering whole cheese or whole pepperoni pizzas for $5 each. They’ll accept cash, checks and credit cards.
I don’t stay out that late anymore, but I’m pretty excited for those who do because I know a hot pizza pie really hits the spot in the wee hours. Personally, I think it’s a smart idea. If you go, let us know what you think.
