As an East banker... this might be enough to get me to cross the river. LOL! Congratulations to Chicken's Kitchen who found themselves on the New York Times' "The Restaurant List" which is their current top 50 Restaurants in America. That's a huge honor! An honor that is shared by an iconic New Orleans establishment, Brennan's.

So what makes Chicken's Kitchen so special? Well I cannot wait to find out in person since I hadn't heard of them before. Have you? If not, they offer a few main entrée options each weekday - things like fried chicken, baked chicken, fried ribs, Tuscan chicken, fried catfish, even braised ox tails! Then you pick 3 sides like 5 star mac, seafood smothered okra, and candied yams. Sounds good, right?


Don't wait too long to get there. They open weekdays at 10:30am and close when they sell out. They're at 629 Derbigny St in Gretna. Here's something else I love about this local business. Once each quarter, they close for a week. The entire staff gets a paid week off for a mental health break. Sounds like a place worth supporting, right? Especially since it made a top 50 restaurants in America list. :)
