Finally – we have a fried chicken place in Birmingham that looks like it’s going to be great!
I popped into a preview night for Bonehead, the new fried chicken place just off John Bright Street in the city centre. It’s a pretty simple concept or fried chicken and craft beer, with Beavertown on tap / in cans and a takeover planned.
Lap-Fai Lee has been behind some of the most delicious fried chicken pop-ups in the city, and he’s chef consultant for Bonehead, as well as the man in the kitchen on preview night. If that’s not the sign of good things, then I don’t know what is. And the wings I tried lived up to expectations – I’m looking forward to returning and trying the burgers and waffle fries.
With a seated area upstairs with 32 covers and no reservations, this is going to be popular, but if the preview night is anything to go by it’s going to be well worth a visit.
