Before a panel of celebrity judges on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Questlove lost a fried-chicken taste-test to Momofuku's David Chang. Far from wallowing in the ashes of defeat, Love rose to the occasion, partnering with Philadelphia restaurateur Stephen Starr to place a stand for his chicken and other gourmet fast food in Chelsea Market. In the daily sweep of hungry tourists and jean-clad techies who descend from the Google fortress across the street, the honey-butter biscuits go fast, but from lunch until dinner you can depend upon hot dumplings, an array of cupcakes, and the succulent fried chicken, brined and battered so that your teeth will tear away the meat in steamy strips instead of delicate shreds. Definitely grab a watermelon jalapeño Loveslush—between bites of Crème de la Crab dumplings, the sweet acid sting from a few sips of slushie will cut through the fat. To demolish your dumplings, it’s best to plop down on a nearby ledge, preferably by the colorfully lit water feature a few steps away. By the time it takes a creative technologist to dash across the street with a box full of Mornay’s truffled egg dumplings, the soupy umami flavors congeal into an inert mass. As for dessert, you should probably get your sugar kick somewhere else. The "sexual chocolate" cupcake may hold some merit, but not enough to make up for the bland creaminess of its counterparts, such as the more subtly titled "miso-honey."
