Notable quality: The Cool Spot 

Since opening its second location among the booming shops on Fairfax, Plan Check has become the place for those who seek refuge in a modern American menu. They developed a cult following with their incredibly tasty burger topped with ketchup leather, but it's their chicken that deserves your immediate attention. For those who enjoy layers of robust flavors, Plan Check's smokey fried jidori chicken placed gently in a pool of smoked milk gravy, yam preserves, and topped with pickled okra is must. A perfect combination of savory and sweet, this cast iron beauty tastes just as delicious as it looks.
