It’s probably not the way they drew it up, but a notable fried chicken restaurant from New York City has opened their second brick and mortar outpost in Paulus Hook and has started taking pick-up and delivery orders from the community.
Last October, Bobwhite Counter announced that they were opening inside Portside Towers at the storefront along 100 Warren Street. The eatery, which first opened at 94 Avenue C in Manhattan back in 2012, is the brainchild of owner and chef Keedick Coulter.
Hailing from Roanoke, Virginia, a review in the New York Times detailed Coulter’s process of drenching his chicken in sweet tea and leaving it to brine overnight. The bird is then dredged in milk, flour, salt, pepper, and spices before being pressure fried to perfection.
Per a recent Instagram post from the restaurant, Bobwhite Counter is now serving a limited menu for pick-up and delivery only out of their Jersey City location. Orders can be placed by phone by calling them at 201-435-5026 and the restaurant has a new Bobwhite Counter app that users can download to place orders for pick-up.
When fully up and running, the restaurant’s full menu will include combinations of thighs, wings, drumsticks, or boneless tenders. Their sandwiches and biscuit choices run from a buffalo chicken option, a cheddar bacon version, or a pimento cheese variety. Sides like mac and cheese, collard greens, and coleslaw round out the menu.
Bobwhite Counter is now taking lunch and dinner orders and will celebrate a formal opening of their space, which will include proper seating areas, at some point after COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
