How did two brothers from New Jersey become famous for serving some of the best fried chicken in the country???
Well, it started with lots of passion for all things culinary, a famous cooking school in Paris called Le Cordon Bleu and a two-decade old fine dining empire of restaurants, all called Blue Ribbon; that plus a little bit of luck and ton of hard work.
One night back in 1992 while creating the original menu for the original Blue Ribbon Restaurant, Blue Ribbon Brasserie, Brothers Eric & Bruce Bromberg just couldn’t leave their childhood favorite dish off the eclectic and fun menu, so the recipe testing began! “Fried chicken at a fine dining restaurant” you say, who ever heard of that?? Well in 1992, absolutely no one! And it wasn’t until a happenstance moment of egg whites, matzo meal and a special blend of seasonings produced the best fried chicken that the brothers and diners alike had ever tasted!
Well, that was then and this is now and we are still striving every day to produce that same quality fried chicken at BRFC that we have become known for from coast to coast amongst the nation’s best chefs and everyday connoisseurs of all things delicious.
