Description: One of the more established restaurants in the North Fork Valley - The Flying Fork has a reputation for using the freshest, most local ingredients available. Owner/Chef Kelly Steinmetz uses the words "Simple Elegance" to describe both the cuisine and the ambience at the Flying Fork Cafe, located at the corner of 3rd and Main St. In Paonia. Dinner is elegant and packed with flavor. Choose from an assortment of pasta, braised Colorado lamb, NY strip steak, fresh fish, homemade Lasagne or fettuccine. Plus daily specials. "Being able to set up this restaurant from scratch is a dream come true," says Kelly. He keeps his eye on the "complete package" - flavorful food, outstanding service and a pleasant ambience, which is enhanced in the summer by outdoor garden seating under the fruit trees. With any meal, enjoy wines, beers, spirits and hard cider from around the North Fork & Colorado. In the bakery, sample a delicious cinnamon roll with bing cherries & walnuts or a hearty muffin with a cup of fresh roasted organic coffee. Pick up a loaf of artisan style bread, a dozen homemade cookies and stuffed focaccia breadsticks to take home. Cooking it up with Passion & a Whole Lotta Goodness since 2003.

Since my wife and I were not too hungry, we thought we would order appetizers and soup/salad items. Although we were ordering from the less expensive part of the menu, the quality of all the items was 1st rate!

We were so pleased to discover this wonderful restaurant in paonia.
The outside garden is the best place for a romantic dinner.
The food is extraordinary with so much attention to the details. It felt like we ate in a Michelin star restaurant.
The NY stripe steak was perfectly made and the Moscovy duck breast was tender and delicious.
A must place to eat when you're in the area,

Great food and on Sunday they make fresh bagels. Get your order in early or be prepared to line up before they open at 9am or they will all be sold out!
