‘Jook, A Chicken Joint’ Latest Venture From The Sassy Biscuit In Dover
Jook, A Chicken Joint, co-brand to The Sassy Biscuit Co., is set to open on Thursday and will serve as the southern-inspired bruncherie’s alter ego and evening version. The restaurant will be in the same location as the Sassy Biscuit Co., at 104 Washington Street in Dover, and promises to become the hot spot for grabbing comfort food in town.
Don’t worry; The Sassy Biscuit Co. isn’t going anywhere. You can still count on getting your biscuits, waffles, and other brunch favorites during the morning and early afternoon hours. And, under the same ownership, Jook, A Chicken Joint will open at 3:00 p.m., and remain open until 9:00 p.m., so you can get a bite of quality, scratch-made cooking well into the evening.
“I’m excited to be able to offer something in the evening, so people can experience our unique recipes and high-quality food any time of the day,” owner Jilan Hall-Johnson told Seacoast Current. “It was fun coming up with new recipes that people can relate to and enjoy.”
The Sassy Biscuit Co. opened in mid-August, followed by a bit of a slow season, where people haven’t been eating out as much. Owner Hall-Johnson said it took a while to build up a following, but that they have pushed through all the challenges that 2020 has brought, and plan to continue.
“Opening a restaurant in the middle of a pandemic hasn’t been easy," she said. "We’ve tried to adjust and keep pushing through. We’re lucky to have a good core staff that believes in what we do, and that are willing to keep pushing through, too.”
Jook, A Chicken Joint was in the owners’ plans from the beginning. The co-brand to The Sassy Biscuit Co. is meant to offer a cooler, more sultry vibe - somewhere you go at night for a fun and unique dining experience.
“From the beginning of our New Hampshire venture, Jook, A Chicken Joint was part of the plan,” Hall-Johnson said. It’s necessary to keep our brand relevant throughout the day.”
The menu for Jook, A Chicken Joint features southern-style fried chicken sandwiches, wings and side dishes, as well as desserts, which Hall-Johnson said she’s most excited about.
“Dessert isn’t something we have on the menu at The Sassy Biscuit Co., but Jook, A Chicken Joint will feature both a banana pudding and a pecan pie on the menu," she said. "I’m excited to share these new recipes.”
To start, it will be open for takeout only on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at 104 Washington Street, in the same location as The Sassy Biscuit Co.
Orders can be placed in person, online, over the phone or through Door Dash.
