CTNow Hearts Our Fried Chicken
"The smokehouse and gastropub, which opened in Black Rock in Bridgeport this summer, makes fried chicken the way you've prayed for. A brown-paper-lined aluminum tray bears four plump, crisp, mahogany hunks of chicken. This is eat-it-with-your-hands food. The coating shatters beneath our teeth, tasting of salt, pepper,thyme, a trace of celery salt. The chicken, brined in buttermilk and fresh herbs, is most and bursting with flavor."

"Certainly, the food scene in Bridgeport is getting "curiouser and curiouser."And that's a very good thing. No need for a trip down the rabbit hole, however, to experience the marvelous and weirdly wonderful creations at the new Walrus and Carpenter at 2895 Fairfield Ave. The concept (brain child of proprietor Joe Farrell) is this - a slow cook BBQ house that offers haute cuisine sides and a first class beer menu where everything (except for the tequila and the pit master) is made in America."
