Fried chicken may not be unique to New Orleans, but it’s one of the many dishes that we do best. There’s even a festival for it every year. When it comes to seeking out that perfectly crisped bird, you can't go wrong sticking to the classics like Willie Mae’s and Dooky Chase. Or you could try the new(er) kids on the block like Picnic Provisions or Morrow’s. Feeling fancy? Get wild and treat yourself to the buttermilk fried chicken at Miss River–it's presented whole and then carved in the middle of the restaurant, so you get dinner AND a show. Put on your stretchy pants and prepare for a feast – here are the best places for fried chicken in New Orleans.
