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.

I am what you call a believer--a believer that a merry wedding of sweet and savory is the ultimate and unquestionably perfect union. So when you bestow upon me such an immaculate concoction such as Sweet Chick's chicken and waffle--there is no greater bliss that can be experienced by any man. 

Their bacon & cheddar Waffle is hands down, the best waffle I've ever had. So good, that I bought a second one to-go, which I later forcibly shoved into my boyfriend's mouth despite his protests that he had just eaten. Their bacon cheddar waffle is moist and fluffy--the most necessary elements in a perfect waffle. Their fried chicken is crispy and succulent--drizzled with their genuine maple syrup, it's enough to make a believer out of any man/woman/reluctant significant others. Wash this merriful union down with one of Sweet Chick's worthy drafts, and if you're still hungry, dig into some of their duck confit sliders--which are tasty, that is--if you aren't tempted to order another waffle.
