Raleigh, N.C. — The Twisted Fork will reopen Monday in Triangle Town Center Commons, owners announced Wednesday.
The restaurant and bakery closed in August after a fire.
There will be a few changes to the decor and menu, including pizza made with fresh dough from the bakery.
“We added pizza for my kids – in fact, two of the pizzas are named after them – and will utilize meats from our smoker on quite a few of them,” owner Dean Ogan said in a statement.
The house-smoked barbecue and fresh-ground burgers are among the returning menu items. The salad and fruit bar, scratch-made desserts and all-day $3 craft beer specials are also back.
During the past few months, many of the restaurant’s employees have been working at other Rocky Top Hospitality venues, including a baking operation at 1705 Prime on East Millbrook Road. Twenty-nine of Twisted Fork’s 40 employees will be returning, and each will receive a monetary bonus for their patience during the restaurant’s renovation.
The restaurant was supposed to reopen on Sunday, Jan. 24, but pushed things back a day due to the winter weather.
