Wayfare Tavern, owned by Tyler Florence and helmed by Executive Chef/Michelin Star-earner Joey Elenterio, feels like a private club/gastropub with its extensive dark wood and leather finishes. It's known for its “ridiculously good fried chicken,” but be sure to taste other seasonal menu must-haves, such as the baked macaroni and cheese, the burger, and the deviled eggs. Pro tip: make a reservation to sit upstairs, where it's a bit quieter.
Chef Tyler Florence’s signature buttermilk-brined fried chicken is the fanciest fried chicken on this list (and probably the most famous since it’s received national accolades). What makes this chicken so spectacular that hundreds of people order it every day? Something about the fact that the chicken is baked on low heat first and the garlic and herb-infused oil it’s fried in. This chicken absolutely lives up to the hype.
How to book: Order for pickup or delivery on Toast.
