The time has come: Chef Dan O’Brien launches his fried chicken pop-up at Seasonal Pantry Wednesday at noon. Four styles of crispy bird will be sold through Saturday, with the first being the hot hot chicken sandwich pictured above. Yes, it’s real, and 200 are waiting to be ordered.
In addition to the crispy birds, you’ll find sides such as pimiento mac and cheese, spicy cabbage and peach slaw, potato salad, and more. Blue Duck Tavern pastry chef Naomi Gallego will serve her doughnuts on Thursday and Friday for a sweet finish. Orders start at noon each day, with the exception being fried chicken with corn-jalapeño waffles on Saturday, sold from 5:30 on.
A limited quantity is available for takeout, so better get dialing—and then feasting.
