Spork, the Valencia Street establishment that has been elevating comfort food for five years now, has reached the end of their lease Ms. Tablehopper reports. Friday, December 23rd will be the restaurant's last day to grab their infamous in-side-out burger (two patties, bun in the middle, all skewered with a large steak knife) or the opulent Champagne of Burgers. After the new year, the co-owners plan to focus on their more grown-up concept at Thermidor in Mint Plaza.
As for Spork, the restaurant's departure is an amicable one, co-owner Neil Jorgensen told Tablehopper that in addition to Thermidor they'll be working on a few new projects, one of which hopefully brings more hamburgers.
The delightful fast food throwback building (it used to be a KFC, appropriately enough) is slated to be demolished to make way for new condos and a bigger restaurant.
