Best Fried Chicken2012 Finalist See 2012’s Winner »
558 Sacramento, San Francisco, CA 94111
The Wayfare Tavern in the Financial District is not just known for its broad-shouldered patrons in suits on power-lunches or scantily-clad hostesses carting fruity cocktails with names like "poolside" (basil, watermelon, lime, and pisco and tastes like a Capri-Sun), but also for its spectacular organic fried chicken. As the shiny booths, roaring fireplace, and taxidermy buck mounted on the wall would suggest, the fried chicken at the Wayfare is a classy, more elegant riff on traditional fried chicken. Five pieces, lightly pan-fried, are served with roasted garlic, lemon wedges, and a fragile nest of fried sage and thyme balancing perfectly on top. This barely spicy and particularly herby version of this dish tastes more homespun and delicate than its deep-fried competitors, a variation we found to be as refreshing as the drinks.
