First look: Grillin' Wings & Things now roosting in Bonnie Brae

"Don't be chicken," pleads the sign roosting above the new Grillin' Wings & Things, which opened last week in Bonnie Brae in a small storefront space that's seen a slew of sandwich shops open and shutter over the past several years.

Despite the fowl joke, owner Michael Godart and general manager Chris Swanson hope that their new chicken coop, which has a liquor license and several TVs tuned to sports, will fly right in a neighborhood that seems to overwhelmingly favor pizza and pasta, considering that Saucy Noodle and Bonnie Brae Tavern have been stuck there for decades.
