Fried Chicken Emergency
I just went to put my annual fried chk order in with Charles for a party we throw every year.
Discovered what others may have already known -- that Charles closed last fall.
Ideal replacement would be a better-than-Charles hole in the wall in Bed Stuy. (We're in Brooklyn, and Charles was a [worthwhile] haul.)
Any concepts? We're talking 150-200 pieces, and would like to keep it in the $1-$1.5 per piece range. (All yuppie chk like Dirty Bird + pies/thighs [when it was open] was more like $2.5+ per piece range.)
Many thanks for any ideas.
If you have a car, I'd recommend hauling out to Zorns on Long Island. There are three locations, but I've always gone to the original Bethpage location on Hempstead Turnpike just west of 135.
Having been around since 1940, Zorns is truly a Long Island institution.
This is a link to the Bethpage website:
You might want to try La Cabana Rodriguez on Beverly Rd & Flatbush Ave. They practically have windows full. Cheap and delicious IMO.
