Chicken and waffles at Sweet Chick
John Seymour knows a thing or two about riffing on down-home grub, with years slinging creative burgers at Pop's of Brooklyn. He adds yet another comfort classic to his repertoire with this wood-paneled chicken-and-waffle den. Here, the soul-food staple gets a chefly update: The organic poultry is deep-fried and served atop flavored Belgian-style waffles (bacon and cheddar, rosemary and mushroom). Along with the namesake dish, carnivorous chow covers the communal picnic tables, like roasted pork tenderloin and dry-aged rib eye, and humble sides such as mustard greens, pickled watermelon rind and homemade buttermilk biscuits. Keeping up with the rustic-meets-refined spirit, the reclaimed wood bar offers tipples like a house-infused watermelon vodka martini and a classic rye Manhattan.
