Between a strongly hinted at forthcoming chicken place from Randy Evans and now Goro & Gun/Modular owner Josh Martinez's upcoming fried chicken place, this year is slated to be the year of the bird. Martinez and partner Paul Sedillo are expected to be opening fried chicken joint The Chicken Ranch at 6500 N. Main this year, where Bellissimo Ristorante once stood. A Swamplot reader sent them an image of the upcoming site, where Swamplot reports that "the new occupants are working toward a certificate of occupancy for a fall opening."
