Fried Chicken at ROOT & BONE

In a year of major fried chicken openings, Root & Bone (helmed by two previous Top Chef contestants) took best in show with an unusual brine of sweet tea and a dusting of cayenne and lemon powder that both sweetens and brightens the already succulent meat. Tabasco honey and bourbon maple syrup are provided on the side for drizzling.
