The Misfit

Just shy of the 3rd Street Promenade is a fancy-casual restaurant and bar named “The Misfit”. With a 20s vibe and a killer lunch special, this place is spectacular. My favorite menu item is the Crispy Chicken Sandwich: Jidori chicken breast, fennel apple slaw, and incredibly good spicy mayo. This is no Carl’s Jr $1 Chicken Sandwich! This is a beast to be eaten with a knife, fork, and hefty lunch appetite. This killer meal is typically $14 although if you get the Bar Fly lunch special at the bar on Monday’s, you’ll only be setback $5!! There’s typically a wait for the bar, especially if you’re a party of 3+. I have never been disappointed with this sandwich — it’s spicy, crunchy, and all around delicious. The meal is completed with some complimentary sea-salt┬áchocolate chip cookies which just totally melt in your mouth. Props to the chef!!

Roundup Notes

Delicious. Crunchy. Flavorful. A little spicy. The Misfit has it all. Fantastic lunch special on Monday– crispy chicken sandwich for $5. Don’t forget to ask for a cookie at the end.. or the beginning.. or both!
