Burdock and Co. masters fried chicken.
Good chefs can nail a dish, but the great ones, they can shine in any genre. Exhibit A is Andrea Carlson, who, as owner of Harvest Community Foods and chef/owner at Burdock and Co., has become a de facto poster child for all things local, sustainable, organic and vegetable-forward. But deep down she’s also a fried chicken savant. This $16 dish has been on the Burdock menu in various guises for the past few years, but its current iteration—organic chicken thighs marinated in buttermilk before being perfectly fried and topped with a dusting of dill pickle powder—is the stuff of dreams. To cut through the richness, there are pickles of charred cipollini onions on the side and the whole operation rests on a pillowy streak of mashed potatoes. Imagine Colonel Sanders doing a stage at Chez Panisse and you’ll get the idea.
