This Sunday night, let Walton Street Kitchen + Bar (912 N State St) do the cooking! The Gold Coast restaurant recently launched their Sunday Night Fried Chicken dinner special ($28) allowing guests to have a delicious, family-style comfort meal to top off the weekend before diving into another work week.
Fair warning, you will need your strongest chomping teeth to chow down on Walton’s Fried Chicken. While the breast and thigh meat is cooked to perfection, the breading is fried to an almost too crunchy crisp. The recipe for the breading is rather plain and is reminiscent of a hometown fried chicken joint. While there is nothing unique about the Sunday night-only special, the three pieces of chicken are still very satisfying. The platter comes with a side of underwhelming jalapeno cornbread that tastes more like jalapeno than corn; obligatory coleslaw and not enough of their addictive, house made Alabama White BBQ dipping sauce. The slightly spicy sauce is the perfect complement to your forkfuls of chicken.
One order of the Fried Chicken is enough for one but can be shared by two with room for recommended add-ons like the Seasonal Flatbread ($15) or Sweet and Sour Rock Shrimp ($17) while still leaving a craving for one of their delicious desserts (their 7-layer cake is rich but highly recommended!).
Walton Street Kitchen + Bar serves dinner on Sundays from 4pm to 9pm. The early bird gets the fried chicken though so head in early on Sundays before it sells out!
