Royal Hen is a gastropub in Newport Beach. Its chicken pot pie isn’t a deconstruction, an interpretation, or even an update; it’s chicken pot pie in its most classic form. It will remind you of the frozen pot pies mom brought home the supermarket—something you’ve always considered a treat. Royal Hen’s is better, of course, with higher quality ingredients, such as chicken like it came off a whole roasted bird and gravy that tasted made from scratch. Still, this pie didn’t stray from the peas-and-carrots of pot pie canon, with a golden, flaky and buttery sealed top that you will tear into like a Christmas present.
