The Rosé Garden at Fork will be open every Friday night.

Ahead of National Rosé Day, celebrated on the second Saturday of June, Old City's Fork has announced it will pour rosé in its own rose garden this summer. Sounds magical, right?

The Rosé Garden outside Fork will be filled with flowers that will spill into the restaurant's bar area.

"We drew our inspiration from Independence National Historic Park's nearby rose garden, where the Founding Fathers might have enjoyed a glass or two al fresco," said owner Ellen Yin.

Strawberry cheesecake dessert at Fork in Old CityCourtesy of/Fork.

The strawberry cheesecake is made with strawberry-balsamic sauce, strawberries compressed with mint and pistachios. Goes perfectly with a glass of pink wine.

On the menu will be a rotating selection of rosé wines from around the world, all available by the glass, in a weekly changing flight or by the bottle, as well as rosé-infused and rosé-friendly cuisine.

The Rosé Garden will be open this weekend, from 5:30 to 10 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday. After the kick-off, it will be open on Friday nights through the summer, with Rosé Garden specials available exclusively in the outdoor garden and at the bar, including weekly happy hour specials through 7 p.m.

Below is the opening weekend menu, provided by Fork.
