It’s A Pleasure to Meet You
Geoffrey and Emily Heyde started Fork & Barrel with one goal in mind: giving people as much southern hospitality and charm as one restaurant can hold.
Geoffrey Heyde serves his guests as Executive Chef and Proprietor of Fork & Barrel, his first solo project since graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in 2000 and subsequently working at several Louisville favorites. His vision is fresh and simple: Fork & Barrel prides itself on serving upscale American cuisine with a focus on local ingredients, craft cocktails, and that unmistakable southern hospitality.
Our restaurant is a place where family gathers. When someone walks through our doors, we want them to feel at home no matter if they’ve come for supper or come to have a drink on a date night. Here you’ll find the comfort of the foods you grew up with… just kicked up a notch and served alongside some of the best drinks in the region. We use good, wholesome ingredients and classic skills to whip up each of our dishes. And while parts of our menus are seasonal so we’re always using the best and freshest local ingredients, we’ll keep your favorites on all year round.
Southern Hospitality is in Our Marrow
