When Jacob’s Pickles opened on the Upper West Side in 2011, it was one of the first truly cool restaurants in a neighborhood better known for its sleepy dining scene than hip eateries and bars. The back-to-basics menu was one we could get behind (goodbye, stale chicken wings and greasy fries). The Southern-focused spot specializes in comfort foods: Nashville hot chicken, biscuits, mac and cheese and, of course, pickles. Now we have a taste of down-home cooking with one of their best dishes: the fried chicken sandwich. In their first-ever expansion to Brooklyn, Jacob's Pickles brings what they do best: a pillowy biscuit plays well with the crispy chicken, a richness that is cut by the acidity of their sour pickles. It's our dish of the day!
