As chefs Shook & Dotolo recently told Food & Wine Magazine, Son of a Gun will have a primarily seafood-focused menu, and their current ideas include items like bottarga taramasalata; uni with carrot, nettle curry vinaigrette, and apple; pimento cheese fries; and baked clams, “mafia style.” Though there will also be fried chicken, “inspired by Chick-fil-A and Bakesale Betty.” (via LA Weekly)

  1. for a minute there…I thought the “Shrimp Toast Sandwich, Herbs, Sriracha Mayo” was using crispy pork belly as the pieces of toast.
