Have you been to Avenue C? Few years ago I would’ve said HELL NO to go alll the way to Avenue C. It felt like going to the edge of the world and it still does in some ways. But after having my meal at Bobwhite Lunch and Supper Counter, opened back in January, I have no problem going to the edge.
I have had my fair share of fried chicken eating in this town (Pies ‘n’ Thighs, The Brooklyn Star, Hill Country Chicken, Buttermilk Channel, and The Redhead.) but there’s still so much I haven’t tried and keeping a list doesn’t actually help me eat more fried chicken. Anyways, I met up with Molly for dinner at Bobwhite. The atmosphere, the feeling I got when I sat down, the super nice workers and ultimately the delicious fried chicken totally put this place on the top of my fried chicken list.
We shared a fried chicken plate that came with a salad, biscuit and a side (it was mac n’cheese for us) and a fried pork chop sandwich.
It’s hard not to like a place where you don’t have to leave tips and is semi self-service. But seriously the lady that took our orders was so friendly, we had a little chat about Avenue C with her before leaving. Like me, she lives in Brooklyn and has never really been on Ave C until started working at Bobwhite. See fried chicken brings all the people together.
The fried chicken was flavorful, crispy crunchy outside and juicy inside. The pork chop sandwich was good and now I”m tempted to try their fried chicken sandwich. For $11.50 the chicken plate is the same price as Pies ‘n’ Thighs and I prefer going to Bobwhite.
