PHILLY — Two years ago, Eli Kulp left Torrisi to revamp Fork in Philadelphia. He chats with Eater about what drew him to the local restaurant scene, his ambition, and his new-found love of Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine. "I think Philadelphia's finally realizing that it has something special, and they're promoting it, and people are seeing it, and they're appreciating it. It's sort of snowballing. There's something nice about that relationship that's the proximity to New York." [~EN~]
