Chicken & Waffles, Gochujang Chicken Wings, and a Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich.

Chef John Kerstetter’s brand of cheffed up comfort food is an impressive spread of three heavenly dishes. First, a classic dish— the sweet, crunchy and golden brown Chicken and Waffles ($9). Next, a happy hour menu item— Korean style Gochujang Chicken Wings ($8), with a savory, sweet and spicy sauce, a proper crunch, and juicy and tender chicken. Third, a Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich ($9), which featured a hearty and moist chicken thigh coated in a spicy mix of smokey seasonings. And, while those three are a charm, Chef John has more to offer.

Whiskey & The Wolf–– Spicy Fried Chicken Thigh Sandwich

The newly-opened gastropub style restaurant on Alexis Rd. offers a Crispy Chicken Thigh sandwich on the menu, but this option isn’t your typical fare. Chef Alex Braden also offers this towering, sweet and spicy option that requires both hands. Trust us. Enjoy chicken thigh, soaked in buttermilk and dredged in a spiced, seasoned flour, then deep-fried before being topped with a creamy homemade slaw of jicama, napa cabbage, sweet onions, carrots, and mayo, in-house pickled serrano peppers, arugula, two big slices of thick-cut bacon, arugula, dijon mustard, and a brioche bun by Strachn Bakery. It’s big, bad and delicious, making it an enticing option.
