Ben Schneider and his wife Sohui Kim built the Good Fork, their scrappy and elegant Red Hook restaurant, from the ground up and opened on Van Brunt Street in March of 2006. Since Hurricane Sandy, the couple has been working around the clock to rebuild and reopen their damaged restaurant. The Good Fork's kitchen crew has kept their knives sharp with a temporary residence at Skylark in Park Slope, and now Kim and Schneider say they're almost ready to reopen. They're offering a $90, four-course menu with an optional wine pairing on New Year's Eve. You can call 718-643-6636 for a reservation, and if you can't make it, keep in mind that the restaurant has raised $53,888 of its $50,000 goal, but is still accepting donations and will hold an open house on Saturday for all of those who've helped them rebuild during the last two months. Party on. [Good Fork/Twitter via Pete Wells/Twitter]
