Local chef and Top Chef Canada alum Nicole Gomes debuts Cluck 'n' Cleaver.
Caterer and Top Chef Canada alum chef Nicole Gomes has a new mission: to bring the best fried chicken to the masses along with her sister Francine (a fellow chicken enthusiast) who for the past decade has been a chicken farmer in the Kootenays. The sisters have been working on this new casual take-out concept for about a decade, and the newly revamped, tiny brick stand-alone building on 14th Street and 15th Avenue SW finally opened this spring—to enthusiastic fanfare.On the wall: poultry paraphernalia—rubber chickens, vintage KFC swag and other chicken-themed trinkets they’ve accumulated (and friends have brought them) over the years. On the menu: crunchy fried (by the piece or box) and rotisserie (by the quarter, half or whole bird) chicken, buttermilk biscuits, hand-cut fries, potato and egg salad, corn and black bean salad, slaw, cookies and milkshakes—comfort food at its best. They have a few stools at the window, but it’s mostly geared to-go (there are even vintage sodas and perfectly chilled chicken and salads in the cooler). It’s a picnicker’s dream.Cluck ‘n’ Cleaver, 1511 – 14 St. SW, 403-266-2067, cluckncleaver.com.
