The Knife & Fork was originally established in 1912 as an exclusive men's drinking and dining club. The second floor was graced a "ladies lounge", where women, who were not permitted at the bar, waited to be summoned. Private rooms on the 3rd and 4th floors were used for gambling and, perhaps, other activities.
During Prohibition, rebellious club members defied the laws of an alcohol-free society and continued to openly serve liquor. The club survived without being raided for some time, perhaps due to the influence of Enoch 'Nucky' Johnson, the reigning political boss, who was a Knife & Fork regular.
The 2005 renovation of this legendary restaurant was designed to recapture the look and feel of the Knife & Fork's Prohibition era roots. The menu, featuring the finest steaks and seafood, is complemented by an extensive wine list and 10,000 bottle wine "cellar".
