Brooklyn Bowl is famous for its fried chicken. “Without question the best, crispy, crunchy, yummy fried chicken I’ve ever had in my life,” said Chef Michael Psilakis on Food Network’s “Best Thing I Ever Ate.”
From a recipe created by Brooklyn Bowl partners Bruce and Eric Bromberg of acclaimed Blue Ribbon Restaurants for the original Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Las Vegas tourists and locals alike have been getting their fried chicken fix at the Las Vegas location of the iconic venue since its opening last March.
Now, the gluten-averse have cause for celebration. The perfectly crispy, impossibly savory gluten-free version of the mouthwatering recipe is now available exclusively at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas.
Brooklyn Bowl’s gluten-free fried chicken is prepared by Executive Chef Dermott Driscoll with gluten-free matzo meal flown in directly from Israel. The restaurant has contracted for 4,000 pounds of the special matzo, which is only produced three times per year.
Combined with Blue Ribbon’s proprietary spice blend, the matzo meal provides the optimal texture to ensure the chicken is not only gluten-free, but also irresistibly crunchy. Available as dinners, including a half-chicken (dark, mixed or white), served with mashed potatoes, collard greens with bacon and honey; as well as platters, which consist of 8 to 24 pieces of chicken (available in dark, mixed or white), the gluten-free fried chicken will be offered at the same price as the Bowl’s traditional fried chicken.
Prices for dinners are $18 for dark, $20 for mixed and $22 for white; platters are priced at $24 to $59 for dark, $26 to $64 for mixed and $30 to $72 for white.
In addition to the new gluten-free fried chicken, the much-lauded menu elevates comfort food and offers new twists on old favorites. Brooklyn Bowl signature dishes include Egg Shooters with pickled peppers and olive oil mayo; a variety of French Bread Pizzas, including The Theresa, with butternut squash, mushrooms and roasted garlic; The Bowl Burger Deluxe with all of the fixin’s and fries; Mac & Cheese with baked crumbs and, of course, its world-renowned original Fried Chicken served with white bread and honey.
New to the menu are also Chef Driscoll’s Deep Fried Pickles with Blue Ribbon seasoning and chipotle ranch. Brooklyn Bowl’s menu is complemented by a thirst-quenching roster of craft beers and spirited house cocktails, such as the Drunken Palmer, combining Seagram’s Sweet Tea Vodka and lemonade, and Rum Punch, a blend of Bacardi Superior, Gosling’s Rum and juice.
Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas serves its full menu in the restaurant and at the lanes every day starting at 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and noon on Saturday and Sunday, when a brunch menu is also available.
Located center strip at The LINQ, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas is where locals and tourists go nightly for an eclectic blend of live music, 32 bowling lanes and five bars with an all-house-made menu created and overseen by brothers Bruce and Eric Bromberg’s Blue Ribbon Restaurants. During shows, more than 2,400 guests can enjoy the performance from the general admission area, the luxurious bowlers’ lounges adjacent to the lanes where guests can relax on leather sofas and enjoy the full menu, or the upstairs lounge boxes that overlook it all.
