Knife and Fork
The Knife and Fork Inn, founded in 1912, is a classic Atlantic City restaurant. It serves steaks and seafood and has an extensive wine list. It has a cozy, rustic atmosphere and is perfect for a romantic dinner.
When eating with a knife, hold it in your right hand (or left, for the lefties among us). Place the fork next to the knife, tines downward, and use it to scoop rice or other small foods. For larger items, place the fork closer to your knife and cut through with a sawing motion. Avoid stabbing at your food, as this can damage it. It’s also unsanitary and annoying to the people around you.
