Chicken Kiev, Red Square

The recently retooled menu features Russian-American standards, including this beloved retro dish. Thinly pounded chicken breast is rolled and then crusted with Lay’s potato chips for optimum crunch, and served over a juicy thigh. Traditional Eastern European pelmeni, or sour cream dumpling, is contrasted by smoky bacon and Brussels sprouts. The only thing missing? The signature squirt of melted herb butter when you cut into the Kiev.

Angelo Sosa is about to launch an Asian fusion restaurant, Poppy Den; and creative L.A. chef Sam Marvin will reveal a steakhouse called Echo & Rig sometime in spring.
