Get ready for CHKN CHOP. The charcoal rotisserie chicken restaurant Jenna Mooers (EDNA) and Andrew Flood (Five by Five Renovations) announced in May is finally getting ready to open.
“We are getting very close,” says Mooers, adding that the restaurant will be open in mid-October. “To quote my mom Jane, who is asked on a daily basis when we will open, ‘They will be open as soon as they are ready, and not a moment sooner.’”
Mooers describes the spot as “a small, fun, casual dine-in and take-out joint.” It’s a family affair with she and Flood being joined by a cousin from Montreal— Patrick Cleve, who will act as the head chef —and her brother Patrick Harland, former co-owner of Soled Out Sneaker Boutique, on board.
“The rotisserie chicken-focused menu will highlight charcoal rotisserie birds, sandwiches, awesome fries, poutine, along with local craft brews and wine on tap,” says Mooers.
