Best Fried Chicken and Waffles SOUTH of 96th st!
I am a very big fan of southern food, especially fried chicken. I know there are a lot of posts about the best fried chicken in NYC and I know that the majority of them are in Harlem. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for where to find the best fried chicken SOUTH of 96 st. More specifically, I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get chicken and waffles (together as a meal, not ordered individually) SOUTH of 96 st, regardless of whether it is only served for brunch or at all times.
Thanks very much I know there must be some other chowhounds out there that not only share my passion for this dish but don't always want to travel so far north to get it!!
Alias on the LES has it for brunch -- it's good but I prefer the fried chicken to be more on the crispy side.
Hip Hop Chow in the East Village does chicken and waffles for brunch, too, but their fried chicken is too greasy for me.
Dang, this thread is old! Nearly three years! A lot has changed in Manhattan, with many more restaurants offering fried chicken & waffles.
For chicken & waffles south of 96th...(I can't vouch for the quality of most of these)..
Permanent Brunch (though theirs is not fried chicken but oven roasted)
Park Avenue Spring (Summer, Fall, Winter)
Another good source for good fried chicken is Virgils. I go in and get take out (either a half, or whole fried chicken).
Oh please, just go to Harlem! I assure you, AMY RUTH'S honey-dipped fried chicken with waffle is worth the extra mile.
