Named one of
Albuquerque The Magazine's Top 5 New Restaurants
FORK & FIG of Albuquerque evokes modern cuisine with service and hospitality that matters most in the dining experience.
Josh Kennon — a Deming, N.M. native who has worked as a personal chef in Los Angeles and Phoenix — has opened his first restaurant later this year in Uptown Albuquerque.
Fork & Fig specializes in gourmet sandwiches, paninis and wraps but also incorporates what Kennon calls a “fine dining to-go” element with more substantial offerings like steak offered on a takeout basis. Kennon, who earned a degree through Le Cordon Bleu in Scottsdale, Ariz., said he emphasizes on fresh, local ingredients.
“I don’t have a freezer, and I don’t have a fryer,” he said.
He opened the 40-seat restaurant this January at 6904 Menaul NE, as part of a new retail development just east of Louisiana.
