Attention chicken connoisseurs! The owner of Eli’s on Whitney has opened up a new chicken restaurant, Roost.

Roost has been open since the end of August and is located on Whitney Ave. The menu features chicken sandwiches, bowls, shakes and more. While waiting for their food, customers can play ping pong or corn hole.

Employees like Jenny Gonzalez are thrilled about how the opening has gone.

“Oh the first few days we were open, the line went out the door,” Gonzales said.
