Don’t let the words “fried chicken” fool you. “Top Chef: All Stars” winner Richard Blais has brought everyone’s favorite protein to inspired levels at this spirited Orange County dining spot that includes a full bar and lawn games. The menu offers comfort food with a gourmet twist, including a range of specialty fried and grilled chicken sandwiches, schmaltz fries and fried chicken oysters.
The much-loved restaurant comes to Orange County after the success of Chef Blais and CEO Michael Rosen’s two San Diego chicken & egg hangouts by the same name. Beyond cleverly named items like the Coop Deville and Malibu Barbie Q, The Crack Shack puts a focus on locally raised, antibiotic free chicken, giving diners only the best of the best.
