LANSING – Jesse Hahn, owner of Fork in the Road, has reached a fork in the road. He will either close the restaurant at 2010 W. Saginaw St. or cut wages, increase food prices, and rely less on Lansing-area farmers. The reason is money, not a lack of customers or a disinterest in his menu of sandwiches, salads, and desserts made from bread and vegetables grown in Holt, Owosso, and other nearby communities. Hahn is struggling to pay a federal income tax lien that he said hit him in May.

The restaurant is open daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
