Thanks for the props guys. Its cool to have the support of people you have never even met. It says a lot about how most people are pretty fucking cool by nature when they can support a stranger. I'll address what eff-1 said, and I have to say I don't think it was meant to be insulting. Maybe a bit misguided with the delivery of costco comparison, but truthfully I think the other mains on the menu are substantially more exciting than a piece of chicken, but as for the cost, free range birds aren't cheap, as well as the fact when a menu item is costed, food cost is a small piece of the puzzle. Execution cost is the important part, and when it includes a chicken jus that has been reduced to about 1/4 of its original volume to concentrate flavour, things like that boost it up just as one example. I've worked in a lot of kitchens, and ran a few in my life and haven't been a part of something that I've been quite as proud to be a part of as this. The food at the beginning was good, and over the past 2 months in my opinion has become great with a few hiccups here and there. The food is in its truest form, no premade processed bullshit ever in this kitchen. If we need to get certain items in that we won't prepare from scratch, we only get the best product, we have a farmer that comes in weekly through the summer and fall to surprise us with the best product, whichever it may be that we get to play with and create features around, butcher whole animals, etc. Its fun, and I really think its cool that you guys care that I'm a part of it.

I like the idea of how mostly everything is made from scratch. Most kitchens nowadays (even high end hotels, which I won't name on here) order pre-made crap. I guess for labor cost, but there's nothing better than simmering and reducing that wine so you can create that delicious au jus to go along with your chicken . Double thumbs up for sure!
