"Fancy" Fried Chicken [MSP]
ok, so the girlfriend really likes fried chicken. like, a lot. her birthday is coming up (not for a while, really but thats not the point it will be here eventually) and she has asked me to seek out the best fried chicken in town. whats the catch? well we'd like it to be sort-of (or really) high end, and preferably somewhere id have a viable veggie/pesc-ey alternative.
it doesnt necessarily have to be a regular menu feature (id be ok wiht somewhere that had it as a special or just as part of a seasonal menu if it could be specifically requested). I dont even know where to start looking because as a non-poultry eater i rarely even give chicken much attention on a menu.
this has gotten more complicated than i intended. simply put: Where is the best fried chicken in the twin cities? Which fancier, suitably date-night type places offer fried chicken on their menus, and who's is the best?
thanks in advance for all input. . .
ouch. Thanks KT, i must have missed that thread (im actually not moving back to the cities full time for a month yet, so i dont monitor the board that closely) but it looks pretty bleak. the good news is skinners is close to our new place, so we've got the low brow covered. . .
i feel like a fried chicken special is something that would work on jP's menu, but i dont think i remember them ever doing it. who's seen it somewhere?
Maybe not the best but certainly good- fried chicken on the regular menu at the Monte Carlo. They have a great outdoor space. It's a fairly old-school menu with a good variety of stuff. Fun in a "throwback" way.
