Ambitious Menu At Resurrection


Craig LaBan bestows two bells on Brendan Hartranft and Leigh Maida’s Resurrection Ale House, the third offering from the prolific beer bar bar couple. LaBan finds the vegetarian options to be of particular note as well as the much-talked about fried chicken.

Resurrection’s twice-fried chicken thighs, meanwhile, are rightfully earning renown, the buttermilk-cornmeal crusts tingling with a pinch of sriracha heat beneath a drizzled honey glaze. I love it most, though, for its flourishes – the house-pickled okra that drips tartly onto the sweet and spice, and a German potato salad below warmed with molten schmaltz and crispy bits of chicken cracklins.
