Fried chicken for a party in Bklyn?
Anyone know where I can order good fried chicken for thirty people for a party?
Popeye's Fried Chicken is excellent.
There is one on Court Street near Atlantic. It is always fresh and delicious. Our family loves it. I never make Fried Chicken anymore, because Popeye's is just better.
To serve it cold, I reheat in a 400 degree oven, and it crisps up, leaving a whole lot of the grease behind. Drain on a rack lined with paper towels. When it is completely cooled, wrap and refrigerate. The vcold Fried Chicken the next day will be delicious and almost greaseless.
Have you thought about one of the soul food places? Mitchell's on Vanderbilt makes some pretty durn good fried chicken - better than the chain places - and I'd bet that with a day or two's warniing they could do what you want. And you'd get some of their good sides too. Or, depending where you are, perhaps Ruthie's on DeKalb. They're such nice people. Not chain store employees but real small business people.
Or, not fried chicken, but I'm pretty sure a good jerk place like Peppa's on Flatbush could churn out some of their delicious product for 30 folks. They seem to do such a high volume business anyway, and chicken is their main thing.
