When the subject turned to fried chicken this week during Craig LaBan’s chat, chatters lamented the fact that Anne Coll’s highly coveted Korean approach to the genre, which the Inky critic himself called the city’s “best,” appears only sporadically on Meritage’s menu. Her ears must have been burning, because the restaurant just sent us word that its seldom seen Korean fried chicken special is back on for Thursday nights. Beginning tonight! A large plate, typically five or six pieces of organic free-range chicken that’s twice fried for extra crispiness and then coated with a sweet and slightly spicy sesame glaze, runs $17, and comes with two side dishes.
