Crunch through the salty, crackly crust of BUSY BEE CAFÉ’s famous fried chicken to reveal a trove of juicy meat thanks to the restaurant’s top-secret brining process. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

We might as well retire this category — at least until WATERSHED stops offering its Tuesday night fried chicken special (which we pray won’t be anytime soon). Who else will ever possibly win? Executive chef Scott Peacock’s signature dish is a masterwork of Southern tradition developed with his mentor, Edna Lewis.

Just remember to show up by 8 p.m. before they run out. less...

The bad news is that you can only get it Tuesday nights and it sells out fast. The good news is that Scott Peacock's pan-fried chicken is a living testimonial to what Southern cooking is meant to be. Soaked in salt water, marinated in buttermilk, dredged and fried in the teen-iniest bit of lard, Peacock's chicken defies the old Cab Calloway claim that "chicken ain't nothin' but a bird." less...
