Curley’s Cracka Jack
Chef Sam Monsour has brought comfort food to the next level. Even the craft cocktails and beer backs take a backseat to snacks like pickled-deviled eggs with tasso ham, a fried chicken dinner served with Doritos Ranch “ranch,” or late-night ice cream sundaes tossed in Fruity Pebbles, Goobers, and rainbow Nerds. But what really taps into our insatiable inner child is the Curly Cracka Jacks, a caramel candied popcorn with roasted peanuts and salty bacon bits. Each kernel is coated in a fine layer of brown sugar and bacon dust and holds up remarkably well to jm Curley’s fantastic selection of hops, whiskey, and amaro. Oh, and to maintain authenticity, the Curley’s version of the ballpark classic contains a prize in every pouch.
