Think the opposite of Luda’s lyric “my chick bad” cause Sweet Chick is better better than words (if you know the song, that’ll kinda make sense). The point is, I’m thoroughly obsessed with this quaint romanticized farmhouse styled restaurant! It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve been and it’s still that one restaurant that has continued to stand out in my mind. It’s entirely because I walked in expecting a completely different experience from the one I got.
With a low key vibe, I expected the quality of food to match it. Instead, the restaurant was flooded with people who I can best describe as oozing coolness and I was presented with some of the best contemporary Southern locally-sourced food I have had to date. Seriously, ideas on cloud nine.
The Shrimp And Grits is amazing! No, you don't quite get it. You see, before eating the Shrimp And Grits at Sweet Chick, I had not once ever enjoyed them, now, I can’t stop thinking about them. The shrimp were incredibly buttery, rich and flavorful. Eating them felt like an addiction. Bite after bite, I couldn't stop myself from going for another—nor, did I want to. The only reason I paused at all was to bite into one of the Fried Chicken Sliders. Same thing! Talk about heavenly. I'm talking, my chick good! It's the perfect ratio of crispy friedness, to juicy chicken, to soft bun.
God, the love fest continues! I mean, Fried Chicken And Waffles where you can choose what kind of waffle you want—hello, bacon and cheddar—and it’s served with three different flavored butters, it's clear that co-founders John Seymour and Sam Saleh along with executive chef Lawrence Duda want their guests to have a thoughtful and unique dining experience. They've created a curated custom menu where you as the diner can order the same Fried Chicken And Waffles dish as the table next to you, you'll order the bacon cheddar version and they’ll go Rosemarry-Mushroom and somehow we've ordered the same menu item and have completely different taste approved dishes. To be crystal clear, this is not the same as ordering an omelet and doing the chef’s job of choosing each ingredient that goes in it and praying that your adventurous mood mixed with the kitchen’s proportion choices didn't yield disgusting results. No, here, and in the case of the Fried Chicken And Waffles, you get six thoughtfully composed waffle choices. Heck yeah, that's a reason to go back. Gotta get ‘em all! Yeah, like I needed another reason to back time and time again!
