Chef Bernstein was thrilled by the response to her fried chicken at Michy’s and this became the catalyst for the creation at Chicken Shack. This concept is bringing the most delectable and decadent selection of fried (and not) chicken available anywhere. "Our inspirations are far reaching and represent many cultures and techniques because we wanted to reflect our community in our food, and we are driven to create comfort food that is satisfying and affordable," said Bernstein. The goal is to prepare a wide selection of offerings to appeal to anyone who loves chicken as much as Michelle does!
