Pluck takes flight this weekend
Pluck’s grand aim is to disrupt the commercial chicken industry and poultry production practices by spotlighting pasture-raised birds and offering the premium chicken at accessible prices. Its menu features fried chicken served by the piece, a chicken burger, a sandwiches ranging from a banh mi-riff filled with rotisserie chicken, pickled vegetables, and pate to a twist on a traditional Italian pork sandwich made with a pounded chicken paillard, garlic sauce, broccoli rabe, and provolone.

A brand new eatery with a menu based on all things chicken will launch this Saturday, September 21 at The Shoppes in Carlsbad. Pluck is the latest project from chef Sam Marvin, who spent five years at Las Vegas classic Piero’s Italian Cuisine before moving to Los Angeles to open Modada on Melrose and downtown’s landmark Bottega Louie; he currently runs Echo & Rig Butcher and Steakhouse in Las Vegas and Sacramento. Pluck is Marvin’s first foray into the fast-casual market, where he joins San Diego’s own Richard Blais (The Crack Shack) and Flavortown’s Guy Fieri (Chicken Guy!) in the business of chef-backed chicken concepts.
