Saucy Chick x The Goat Mafia
In the internet age, no single word generates more hype than “collab.” Some collaborations don’t live up to the excitement they generate, but the Saucy Chick x The Goat Mafia restaurant one absolutely does. The new spot is a brick-and-mortar collaboration between two former pop-ups, both Smorgasburg veterans who’ve teamed up to bring their collective talents west to the ritzy and sometimes bland stretch of 3rd Street between the Beverly Center and the Grove. That means you can get Rhea and Marcel Michel’s Indian-Mexican rotisserie chicken, Juan Garcia and Ivan Flores’ Jalisco-style birria from a century-old family recipe, and a crisp local craft beer all in the same place. The Pollo Pibil and Charred Haldi Cauliflower are particularly lovely, and they make an incredible pair with a couple of those resplendent birria tacos. The space is bright and airy, and they’ve just launched app-based delivery, which means the perfectly balanced rotisserie chicken bowls are available for a quick weekday lunch.
How to book: Walk in, order pickup via Toast, or delivery via GrubHub.
