In mid June, 2012, Kristine Subido opened her first restaurant: Pecking Order, after a decade behind the stoves at the W Lakeshore’s WAVE. As Subido herself refers to her little storefront as a “chicken shack,” at Clark and Montrose, Pecking Order has exploded on to the Chicago food scene, fast developing a reputation for chicken every which way: grilled, roasted, or friend.
Kristine opened Pecking Order as an homage to the generations of women and men in her family who passed down their passion for cooking to her. The signature chicken marinade at Pecking Order is a family recipe that she grew up eating and craves endlessly. When the time was right to put her signature chicken in the spotlight, she opened the doors of Pecking Order with her mother, Melinda – making it a family affair all the way.
