  1. I'm not sure it's the best, but I like Maroons.

      I love maroons, too. Great fried chicken....

      1. pies and thighs in williamsburg, near the bridge (s.5th and kent). it operates out of the kitchen of a long-standing dive bar and produces excellent fried chicken, fried catfish, pulled pork, collards, etc and amazing pies (sweet potato, key lime, french silk, apple, fruit cobbler, to name a few). definitely worth the trip if you're not from the area.
