David Chang and crew just added a new fried chicken family lunch and dinner special at Momofuku Noodle bar in Manhattan. It's still early yet, but it looks like it's the start of a new trend up there.
Meanwhile, here in Philadelphia, David Katz introduced a new fried chicken lunch earlier this spring that has garnered plenty of well-deserved praise.
Unfortunately, it does not appear to have inspired any other rising Philly chefs to try out new fried chicken recipes in their own kitchens. (Yet.)
Which is a shame, mainly because fried chicken is fucking delicious.
Hopefully, a few of the newbies get on board. We're looking at you, Percy Street Barbecue. And you too, Resurrection Ale House.
Meanwhile, it's Thursday, which means it's the one day a week you can get the fried chicken lunch special at Meme.
See if they'll give you a whole bucket.
