San Francisco’s Proposition Chicken opens today in Oakland


The issue is chicken. The main decision you, the voter (aka eater), have to make: Do you want it fried, flipped or fake?

That’s the premise of Proposition Chicken, a fast-casual hit in San Francisco since 2013 that’s making its first foray outside the city. The ballot-themed eatery opens today, Sept. 13, in Oakland’s Lakeshore district.

About those choices (the birds are all Mary’s free-range chicken): The fried option starts out in a rosemary-lemon brine before being herb crusted and fried. The “flipped” option is rotisserie chicken that’s bathed in a lemon-garlic-Italian parsley marinade before being slow-roasted. The “fake” option? That’s crispy barbecued tofu.

Chicken comes as an entree or in a sandwich or salad. Also available are chicken wings, strips, soup and sides like brown sugar Brussels sprouts, fries with malted mayo and homemade biscuits. You can also get your bird gluten-free.

Proposition Chicken will expand its “Non-Profit Monday” program to the East Bay with this opening. Ten percent of all dine-in sales on Mondays will go to a different non-profit each month. First to benefit will be Hip Hop for Change, then Math Action, then Mission for the Homeless.

Find the non-profit details and menus at www.propositionchicken.com. The new location is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily at 3260 Lakeshore Ave., Oakland.
