The Low Down: Since opening its doors in February of 2015, Onefold has slowly revealed itself to be much more complex than it first signaled. Within the last year, the former breakfast joint not only expanded to include a lunch menu, but picked up several Best New Restaurant nods along the way. Its fusion fare, blending the Filipino and Chinese heritages of owners Mark and Terese Nery, has won the hearts of many (save a few Yelpers) with diverse items like Chinese congee, bacon fried rice (with an oxtail version for lunch) and Filipino pancit.
Starting this weekend, Onefold will roll out a new dinner menu with the help of Melissa Yanc of La Fillette. According to Yanc, the menu features 10 items and continues Onefold’s exploration of international cuisine by pulling culinary influences from Europe to Asia. The current menu is stacked with dishes like kaya toast (a Malaysian dessert), a dumpling flight, Spanish pork and beans, artichoke croquettes, and embutido—a Filipino meatloaf. Prices are reasonable, coming in at an average of $10 per plate. Beverages include two beers, three in-house cocktails and red and white sangria. Happy hour kicks off dinner service, running Thursday through Saturday from 4 to 6 p.m. The inaugural dinner is this Friday, March 11. No reservations needed, as it is still first come, first serve.
