Chicken and Dumplings

Coastal Bistro & Bar, $17

Grandma’s version was delish, true. This one, though, arrives as a steamy, aromatic bowl of béchamel sauce, chunky with carrots and peas and—some genius here—chanterelle mushrooms, along with a skillfully concocted confit of chicken thighs. (Question: What’s that unique flavor in the sauce that you can’t quite identify? Answer: Anise.) It’s topped with a fluffy drop biscuit and still more chicken—pieces of splendidly crunchy, deep-fried, juice-dripping breast on the side. Apologies, Granny, but Coastal gets the nod on this one.
