There's a lot of food to love at Grand Central Market — carnitas tacos, oysters on the half shell, Thai sticky rice, falafel, barbecue brisket, egg sandwiches and currywurst, just to name a few — but there's one item that's been missing until now: fried chicken. Belcampo Meat Co., which has a stellar selection of carnivorous products in the retail case, has finally put some of that organic, sustainably raised poultry to even better use by serving a fried chicken plate on its newly launched dinner menu.
You've always been able to get lunch and brunch at the counter, but on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, the market stays open until 9 PM, making it a great casual stop for dinner (with beer and wine, even). Chef Brian Hoffman revamped the menu for those later hours, adding things like a flatiron steak with Rancho Gordo mayocoba beans, wilted greens and romanesco, a lamb burger and more. The fried chicken plate comes with a few pieces of crisp, golden bird plus a housemade honey biscuit, coleslaw and blistered spicy corn off the cob. Have a glass of wine or a beer, play a game (game night is Thursday), and make sure to grab dessert at Valerie or McConnell's before you go.
