Rating: the crullers and chicken were worth the heart attack
Smokey fried chicken. Jidori chicken, smoked milk gravy, yam preserves, spicy pickled okra. This was some damn good fried chicken. There were no bones, just really moist chicken bits and crunch fry. The gravy was, well gravy, and the yam preserves (looked and tasted not far off from apricot jam) really made the whole sizzling chicken fat thing work. Up there with the Ad Hoc Chicken for recent fried chicken greats.
Plan Check subscribes to the Gastropub “fast = flavor” style of cooking, but it pickles that with a little vinegar, and does it well.
