Episode 11

Elie and Bryn make a spicy fried chicken sandwich

What’s not to love about a place where you can get a slug of whiskey in your filter coffee; where shots are encouraged as palette cleansers; and where pancakes and eggs are served late in to the night alongside fried chicken, burgers and sandwiches. Sound like heaven? No…It’s Five Boroughs. To top it all off, owners Elie Assaf and Bryn Thomas embody everything good hospitality should be, bouncing between the kitchen and the floor wherever and whenever they are needed. On the menu you’ll find inventive and original renditions of American comfort classics that have all been given the Five Bourough’s “flavour stamp”. It’s a fine establishment. And these boys make a fine ass sandwich. Soundtrack by Matt Noblė.
