Mario Bevilacqua, owner and chef of the What The Fork food truck, confirmed he is in the process of meeting with architects to design the interior of his first What The Fork restaurant in Downtown Wilkes-Barre.

The distinctive green What The Fork truck has been seen throughout the Wilkes-Barre area and now will have a permanent spot at 41 South Main St., Midtown Village, Wilkes-Barre. Bevilacqua said the new venue will open the end of February.

Bevilacqua said his goal always was to open a brick-and-mortar restaurant. He anticipates the new downtown eatery will have about 25 seats and will offer delivery to the downtown area.

Launched in the Scranton area in July 2012, the bright-green truck has come to offer what its operators call American fusion cuisine. Among its most popular offerings have been the pulled-pork taco, crab-cake sliders, grilled cheese, Korean braised short ribs, “house fry,” made of a Russet Burbank potato with Himalayan salt, and sweet-potato chicken tenders with candy sauce.
