Heading to LA last minute - in dire need of Fried Chicken!

Traveling last minute from SB and REALLY craving some good fried chicken. NO place in SB or nearby offers any redeeming options. Will be heading in and around Santa Monica, Hollywood, Beverly HIlls and Studio City. Thanks LA Hounds, for always steering me in the right direction!

      Bite Bar now offers the best fried chicken I have ever tasted. Only open for dinner on Fri and Sat. Reservations essential.

        Don't get me wrong, Bite is my favorite new place in L.A. I love ALL their food both sweet and savory. But the fried chicken that I had was a boneless breast, perfectly fried and quite juicy for a boneless breast. But if the op is looking for traditional bone-in fried chicken, this isn't it. Personally I prefer dark meat on the bone.

        Salads are lovely. Not impressed by the fried chicken.

      2. Rosco's Chicken & Waffles never disappointed us!

        1. Jidori Fried Chicken at Huckleberry. http://www.huckleberrycafe.com/index....

          Ever since trying it after reading about it in the NY Times, I'm a devotee.

            Also, now a devotee. Got there around 3:00PM and ordered the Jidori fried chicken. Must be made to order as I did wait about a half an hour or more. Was it worth the wait? Hell, Yes. That chicken was fabulous. I reheated it gently in the oven @ 375 for 15 minutes. I served it with the white bean puree ( sold in the case).

          2. Depending when you will be here, Eva makes an excellent fried chicken from time-to-time. The next time will be this coming Tuesday, June 29, when, for $25, you can get all the fried chicken and North County Scrimshaw pilsner you wish. Also concur on Bite's fried chicken but, as noted, currently, it is only open for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights. Pann's is very good as well. Have yet to try the Huckleberry version.
