Don't let the fancy chef clothes and the Uptown address fool you. Brothers Chris and Andrew Ikeda of Lake & Irving earned their stripes as line cooks at Perkins.
You'd think between the salmon quinoa and the crab-crusted snapper these boys churn out nowadays they must've lost their roots while working in elite kitchens in Napa Valley and Hawaii. But it seems they carved out some corners of the menu to remember their line-cook origins.
One of their first projects was to take the chicken sandwich to another level without losing its mass appeal. Mission accomplished, Ikeda brothers. This sandwich tastes so down-home delicious that it's amazing it shares menu space with some of the more hoity-toity offerings.
