If you’re a lover of Chinese food, you’ve probably planned a day around lunch at the busy Flock & Fowl on West Sahara Avenue and its famous Hainan chicken. Haven’t gotten in yet? Fortunately for you, F&F opened up a larger second location in December, and it’s open for dinner, too, which means there’s more time to explore chef Sheridan Su’s menu. His minimalist approach at the original Flock (and the Fat Choy diner at the Eureka Casino) is a big part of his success.

When Itsy Bitsy Ramen and Whisky closed in the winter of 2016, its spot at the Ogden was prime real estate for an expanded chicken joint. The new location carries the specialty Hainanese chicken rice ($15), a soul-soothing, southern Chinese dish that, unlike some comfort foods, doesn’t leave you feeling like you need a triple bypass after lunch.

New mouth-watering items populate the menu, including the son-in-law deviled eggs ($9), curry laksa with prawns and tofu puffs ($17) and a crispy chicken sandwich made with crunchy, buttermilk fried bird and egg salad aioli ($14). There’s even a burger ($16), eight ounces of all-natural beef with soy-glazed mushrooms and caramelized onions.

At least twice the size of the original, the new Flock and Fowl is sleeker, with a full bar at the entrance. When the renovating original reopens, it’ll still be your go-to for lunch. Just consider the new nest when you’re ready to take your dining game to the next level.

Flock & Fowl 150 Las Vegas Blvd. North #100, 702-983-4880. Sunday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-11 p.m.; Friday & Saturday, 11 a.m.-midnight.
