The Bromberg brothers are finally giving their excellent fried chicken the stage it deserves: a 65-seat concept restaurant on First Street. Fried chicken at Blue Ribbon Bakery Kitchen costs $26, but here you can order individual pieces of breasts, thighs, drumsticks, wings, and mighty wings for just a few dollars each. There are also seven types of griddled chicken burgers (that you can customize with cheese, pickled peppers, bacon, and pineapple), sides like fried beans and onion rings, and a variety of salads. Plus: housemade ice cream, Mexican Coke, sweet tea, canned beer, and wine. Take a look at more of the glorious chicken, straight ahead.
