Tiger Fork prepares to celebrate the Chinese New Year with special dishes and a night-market atmosphere from January 20 to January 26.

Hong-Kong inspired Tiger Fork will also host an all-day celebration Saturday, January 25, complete with lion dancers and Kung Fu demonstrations.

During the week, all guests dining during the Tiger Fork celebration will receive a traditional red envelope with their checks.
