Bucktown Is On The National Radar

Bucktown Is On The National Radar

Named by Bon Appetit as a Top 50 finalist for Best New Restaurant 2017, Bucktown is a no-frills joint serving up authentic Southern cooking, a complete contrast to Federal Hill’s Italian staples just a few blocks away. 

We sat down with co-owner and chef Ashley Faulkner, a Bronx transplant and Johnson & Wales alum, to chat about her views on food, how Bucktown came to fruition with co-owner Adam Mir, and what finger-lickin’ items to check out on the menu. 

When did you realize you wanted to be a chef? 
I’ve been cooking since I was able to reach the stove (and that was pretty early because I’m tall). My mom and grandmother were constantly cooking. They would work a full day and still have the energy to make a huge meal. I didn’t want to do anything else.

How did you and Adam cook up Bucktown?
My classmates and I were doing a cleanup for the West Broadway Neighborhood Association and Adam was our cleanup captain. We have the same view on food: Food shouldn’t be a bunch of frills and a million ingredients; it should be something that’s done correctly – home cooking that’s flavorful and good. He mentioned the concept of Bucktown and I loved it.
