There are only so many ways to cook something. Or so we're led to believe. But then you grudgingly order the chicken wings at a restaurant ostensibly too good to be selling chicken wings, and it hits you like a tire iron to the back of the head: These chicken wings taste nothing like all those other chicken wings. Not. Even. Close. But the revelations don't stop there. Every dish here somehow tastes different better than similar items served elsewhere. And then there's the food served nowhere else but here, like the foie gras steamed clams, hot-ass fried chicken, roasted pig face, and the always-shifting, always-thrilling fifth quarter.
