I've searched the board. I've also heard Art Smith does it one night a week but don't know what night or, if it's the best in town.
This is a very special birthday. Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks so much.
Joe's Stone Crab has a surprisingly good fried chicken. It also might be a fun place for a celebration. Best of luck.
Joe's Stone Crab60 E. GrandChicago, IL312-379-5637.
Thanks deesher, much appreciated.
Well, if you can make it up to Andersonville, you might want to try Big Jones Boarding House Lunch. It's not downtown, but it is special:
Wow, looking at the website I know we'd love this place but unfortunately we are without a car so I've bookmarked this for a future visit. Thanks for pinting this out jbw!
Fried chicken + downtown + special occasion = very tough combinationI'd suggest The Southern, just northwest of downtownwww.thesouthernchicago.com
I'll definitely check this out camusman. I cant access the site from my ipad but this sounds promising. Thanks so much.
Crisp in Lakeview has delicious fried chicken (and chicken wings), but I wouldn't say it is that suitable for a "special birthday"
We LOVE Crisp jhojati, it was that chicken that inspired this quest!
West Town Tavern does a fried chicken dinner on Mondays that is very good. It's located on West Chicago Ave. I find this place very charming and homey.
Chef Luciano/Gourmet Chicken just east of Chinatown (south of downtown) is pretty solid. Mostly takeout, but not a bad vibe-worth checking out.
Table 52 (Art Smith) does fried chicken on Sunday. I've heard that it is very good and the restaurant is a lovely setting but the tables are closetogether.
You can actually get fried chicken at Table 52 on Sundays and Mondays. The chicken is fantastic and if you are seated in a room upstairs you have a bit more space between other diners.
