A bounty of gorgeous, speedy heritage Rhode Island Red chickens just arrived from Emmer & Co. These are leaner, smaller birds of Old World genetics and Old World flavor, that roam and forage on open, unrestricted pasture for at least 112 days (most chicken is raised for 42-62 days). They achieve a deeper flavor because of it. No hormones, of course, or antibiotics! These are chickens that are raised the way they are meant to be raised, and taste the way they are meant to taste.
We are serving our favorite new birds al mattone (under a brick) with nettles, house-made ricotta, crispy fingerling potatoes, and brown butter-hazelnut salsa, while they last.
Come on in and enjoy the most natural and most beautiful of meals.
