Yahoo. The spot is called Redcrest and they open on Tuesday in the back of the Starliner bar. It looks delicious and if it’s good enough for Philly, then it’s good enough for us. Well actually, that’s not true, but we’re excited to give Redcrest a try:
A popular Philadelphia fried chicken place called Redcrest will try its luck in Brooklyn starting tomorrow, November 19 — opening in a back patio space behind well-liked Bushwick bar the Starliner.
It’s only the second location for Redcrest, whose fried chicken, served in either bone-in or sandwich form, is on Eater Philly’s list of that city’s best.
But will NYC diners also charm to Redcrest’s chicken? Some already have. Chef/owner Adam Volk is a partner at Esme in Greenpoint, where his fried chicken sandwich is a bestseller at brunch. He’s also partner at Williamsburg restaurant Exley, where his fried chicken family dinners inspired him to return to his native Philadelphia to launch Redcrest in the first place.
