Best thing we ate this week: Chicken's Kitchen
What I ordered: A $12 plate with fried chicken, jambalaya, greens and potato salad.
- The perfectly crispy, just-spicy-enough chicken absolutely stole the show.
The big picture: Williams' Gretna cafeteria-style restaurant quickly became a beloved neighborhood spot after he opened Chicken's Kitchen in 2020, but things really blew up when The New York Times named it a Best Restaurant of 2022.
- The staff moves efficiently, but you can still expect to wait up to an hour in line.
- Stools and water await guests outside the building to help pass the time.
Of note: Diners pick an entree, one large and two small sides. Specials define the days, like red beans and rice Mondays and fried food Fridays.
