Pedalers Fork, the new all-in-one, farm-to-table restaurant, cocktail bar, coffee shop and bike boutique, officially marks its debut today.
The space is pretty to look at - two floors and a big outdoor patio filled with reclaimed brick and wood, vintage bikes and a very country-chic vibe. Chef Dan Murray's menu is a study in seasonality, with dishes like house-pickled vegetables, terrines, lots of fresh salads, quinoa cakes, sandwiches, flatbreads and larger plates. The drinks come courtesy of Marcos Tello and Aidan Demarest, the duo known for cocktails at Bar 1886 and The Edison among others, so expect fresh fruits, housemade syrups and tinctures, herbs and artisanal spirits. The wine list skews Californian, and there are more than 30 craft beers on the menu. And 10 Speed Coffee features single-origin beans from all over the world; this is the first outlet for the Pacific NW roaster.
The cycling part: One of the owners (Robbie Schaeffer) is an avid cyclist, so the shop off the patio in the back offers tune-ups, custom fitting, maintenance and sales. The dude might even convince you to bike everywhere from now on; apparently he rides to and from Studio City every day. Pedalers Fork starts serving coffee at 6 AM daily, with the restaurant open from 7 AM to 10 PM Sunday-Wednesday, and till 11 PM Thursday-Saturday.
