Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?
A: To get some rooster tail.
Kidding aside, you’ll find serious poultry action at Roostertail, opening today just off Fillmore.
The rotisserie chicken concept from chefs Gerard Darian (Bix) and Tracy Green takes flight at the upscale-meets-casual coop (with ash floors, walnut tables, and a full-display spit-roasting kitchen). Roost on a red bar stool at the big-screen-equipped black granite counter at game time or flock to the outdoor patio (coming soon).
Order air-chilled, free-range birds from Mary’s Chickens by the quarter, half, or whole, along with hearty (baked beans, slaw, mac and cheese) and seasonal (fried asparagus, roasted squash, green bean casserole) sides. Gobble on giant chopped salads or sandwiches on Acme bread for lunch.
Ruffle a few feathers with beer and wine on tap, updated wine coolers, or a draft root beer float.
We guarantee a cluckin’-good time.
