Time Out says

What type of cuisine makes you most nostalgic? For chef Darnell Reed, it’s southern food—like fluffy biscuits and extra-juicy fried chicken whipped up by his great-grandmother, Luella, who came to Chicago in the ’40s by way of Morgan City, Mississippi. Reed’s Lincoln Square restaurant honors Luella with a menu inspired by her expert home cooking, pairing succulent, double-brined fried chicken alongside buttermilk waffles and a decadent drizzle of syrup. Take a bite and you’ll wish you’d grown up eating Luella’s meals, too.
