Digital Editor’s Note: Sunday customarily is the slot reserved for Edibles & Potables, but it has been a busy weekend. Yesterday I was helping pour beers for the enjoyment of the wonderful people at the Southern Indiana Pride Parade & Festival in Jeffersonville. It left me with little time to prepare a column today. Instead, this public relations information release offering options for Father’s Day on Sunday, June 19, accompanied by a reminder to business owners: F&D doesn’t have the resources to peruse social media posts in search for newsworthy tidbits. If you have something going on, old-school (!) e-mail does a better job. Send news to me at, and thank you.

Be the Fork: Morning Fork and Fork & Barrel – 1722 Frankfort Avenue

Treat dad to something sweet like red velvet pancakes, Liège waffles or a famous jumbo cinnamon roll for a Father’s Day brunch at Morning Fork. If he’s more of a savory over sweets kind of person, dad can still enjoy the same great Frankfort Avenue location as Morning Fork, but for lunch or dinner! Morning Fork and sister company, Fork & Barrel, recently merged locations to bring both brands under one roof, making the united Be The Fork brand your one-stop-shop this Father’s Day for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. Some of Fork & Barrel signature favorites include Langostino Lobster Fritters, the shareable Southern Charcuterie Board, the Fried Brussels Sprouts Salad, and the Stroganoff with beef tenderloin tips. Be The Fork’s outdoor patio dining area accepts reservations and walk-in guests.
