Chook Charcoal Chicken

Mark Antonation
While living in Australia, restaurateur Adam Schlegel learned that Aussies and Americans have at least one thing in common: the love of a good barbecue. Schegel, who co-founded Snooze with his brother, John, more than a decade ago, came back to the U.S. with a profound appreciation for "chook," spit-roasted chicken cooked over charcoal and served from divey mom-and-pop joints. In 2018, Schlegel teamed up with chef Alex Seidel, the James Beard Award-winning chef/owner of Fruition and Mercantile Dining & Provision, to open Chook Charcoal Chicken along with partner Randy Layman. The specialty of the house is juicy bird cooked Aussie-style over charcoal and served whole or shredded onto sandwiches and salads.
