Fried Chicken Brooklyn

So there is Buttermilk Channel, Peaches Hot House, Mitchell's, Brooklyn Bowl, Pie N Thighs, and Abistro.. Am I missing anything here.. I have been to all of these places with the exception of Buttermilk and yet, I am still searching.. Anyone have a place better than these?

  1. Head to Sidecar in Park Slope. I haven't been to all the places you mentioned, but I prefer Sidecar's fried chicken over Buttermilk, Peaches and Pie N Thigh.

    1. Hate to be the one to tell you this, but we really like the fried chicken at Henry's End.

        I believe that is very good. I liked the food at Henry's End, just not their sauces. And definitely my favorite room in Brooklyn for sure.,

      2. Add Seersucker to the List

        1. Commodore, Egg and Brooklyn Star, all in Williamsburg. Only available on some night at Brooklyn Star.

          1. Popeyes. Get spicy. Not kidding.

              Yeh, I know about some Popeyes.. I love popeyes. I was looking a better option than eating off the hood of my car on Fulton. .i know there are other locations.. I want Popeyes style just with a better bird..

              I went to Buff Patty last night on Myrtle Ave. I can walk there. It's a decent Jamaican Spot where I have only gone to eat Ackee and Salt Cod.. They actually have a really nice version for breakfast. It is also much more calm than what is going on during the dinner rush.

              I got a seafood soup which was actually wonderful.. The thickness of a chowder. Had a very strong clam flavor. It was thick but, I believe it id not have dairy.

              The fried chicken was good, however it was cold. So, the flavor was there but, it held the grease in the skin but,. still remained crunchy.Fresh out of the fryer, it would have been awesome.. My only problem is this is not the quality of chicken I would prefer.

              I think I am going to head to Brooklyn Star next week.

                Popeyes has no ambiance. But there's one not to far from my apt so when ever I get the craving for FC, I go there and take it home. Once got a bunch for a party and put it on platters so it looked nice. People who had not tried it were really surprised by the quality. Let me know what you find on your search. There was a recent thread on the Manhattan board that hashed out the challenge of finding good FC in that boro.
