A new fast-casual roast chicken restaurant is coming to Cos Cob this spring.
Wildacre Rotisserie will be based at 147 E. Putnam Ave. on the site of a Starbucks that closed in 2020. The restaurant is owned and operated by Ben Pote, who was previously director of development at Souvla in San Francisco, director of culinary innovation at Starbucks and director of culinary strategy at Sweet green.
According to its website, Wildacre Rotisseries is inspired by Californian cuisine, with all of its meals homemade from scratch. The customer can dine on site or order for delivery or pick-up.
“Our entrée-style salads feature flavors from the Mediterranean, Central America, and Asia — flavors that are central to California cuisine,” the website says. “They’re hearty enough for lunch or dinner, or to accompany herbed chicken or slow-roasted cauliflower.”
An opening date has not been announced.
