Coqodaq, the innovative fried chicken concept from Simon Kim’s Gracious Hospitality Management and the Michelin-starred Cote Korean Steakhouse team, has opened in Flatiron. Designed by the Rockwell Group as a fried chicken mecca, the concept promises better fried chicken (the team sources air-chilled chicken, uses Zero Acre oil and employs a unique gluten-free batter blend with rice flour) served alongside cold accompaniments like pickled vegetables and a selection of banchan. The restaurant thinks that champagne is the best pairing and the list features an extensive selection of over 400 rare and exclusive bottles.
