  1. Marvin's is very, very good!

    1. Do you mind leaving DC proper? The Amish market in Germantown has killer fried chicken.

      1. In DC-Central and Oohhs and Aahhs
        Just outside of DC-General Store and Post Office

        1. The best I've had are the wing specials at Clydes on the Walk in Chinatown, tuesdays only. These are double dipped buttermilk crusted babies. The only minus is that they are not made to order, so if your timing is off, they're cold. Even then, they are great.

          1. Commonwealth. Used to be a Monday only thing, don't know if it still is.

              With Chef Burrell moved on from Commonwealth to the upcoming Masa 14, might want to hold back on the Commonwealth rec until after we know whether they are able to duplicate without him.
