Grand Central Market’s expansion has slowed in recent years, but there’s still room for at least one new stall: Spring Chicken, offering fried chicken of all kinds soon come summer.
Spring Chicken is the work of chef Chris Dane, who has spent time at places like Connie & Ted’s and Providence. He’ll be working up a menu of quarter- and half-birds cooked with a proprietary citrus brine, alongside the ubiquitous fried chicken sandwich on brioche bun. Expect sides like macaroni salad and buttermilk biscuits, plus craft beer and on-tap sparkling wine.
The stall, first reported by Downtown blog DTLAer, is set to open directly across from Valerie Confections. It comes at the expense of some open seating, but that edge of the market has long been less cramped than the dense middle and Hill Street sides, so perhaps the addition of another new vendor will help to add even more tourists and local diners. Expect an opening sometime in early summer.
