Kansas City has gone wild over chef-owner Charles D’Ablaing's fowl-focused restaurant, Brookside Poultry Co., which opened in January in the East Brookside neighborhood. The menu offers only two categories: poultry and not poultry. D’Ablaing’s Southern roots show in every juicy bite of his 48-hour, sour cream-brined, crispy, crunchy fried chicken.
Make it a meal by adding butter-poached green beans and Cheddar potatoes for an additional $7, or try the chicken salad sandwich with thick-cut steak fries. He also offers whole roasted chicken and duck, sourced from Barham Cattle Co. & Family Farms in Kearney, Missouri. After 72 hours in a citrus brine, the birds are then roasted slowly in a rotisserie oven.
You’ll also find D’Ablaing’s signature shrimp and grits on the menu, plus sirloin steak and Cheddar biscuits. The bar offers a simple selection of about 10 canned beers, and a handful of wines by the glass or bottle.
