In opening their restaurant State Bird Provisions in early 2012, husband and wife Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski drew on one of Brioza's signature dishes from their Rubicon days, a fried quail. The quail is the California state bird, and if you haven't had his version, well, you're missing out. Now Bon Appétit brings us a how-to and recipe from the restaurant, which also happened to be the magazine's number-one new restaurant of the year last year.
