Effie Magazine, National Fried Chicken Day, Magnolia House

What came first, the chicken or the egg?
Who cares, as long as it is fried!


The dinner bell is officially ringing at Rascal for National Fried Chicken Day! Come and get it! Executive Chef Andy Lee is cooking up flavorful Fried Chicken & Gravy, a delicious dish of buttermilk marinated boneless chicken with spicy Italian sausage gravy. For those who prefer their fried bird between buns, try the Fried Chicken Sandwich with vine ripe tomatoes, Napa cabbage slaw, tzatziki and a side of field greens. Pair this poultry with a refreshing wine cocktail named after another fine feathered friend, the Cold Duck, a refreshing mix of house-made sangria topped with sparkling cava blend. The best part about this fried chicken frenzy of a feast is that every single item is just $6.00 all night for Happy Hour!

Venice Whaler

Turn National Fried Chicken Day into a weekend event! Stop by the Venice Whaler for Brunch on Saturday or Sunday to celebrate with a mouth-watering plate of Fried Chicken & Waffles from Executive Chef Nick Liberato. Crisp and golden all around, fluffy Belgian waffles are topped with juicy fried chicken, rosemary and whipped butter ($17.00). Cool down with refreshments from Bar Manager Anthony Settecase like the Moscow Whale, a monstrously marvelous cocktail mixed with ginger citrus, ginger beer, bitters and your choice of Svedka vodka or Wild Turkey bourbon. We suggest Wild Turkey bourbon to keep with the fine feathered poultry theme!

Dine on a little down-home cooking at Downtown Johnny’s in Sherman Oaks this National Fried Chicken Day! Crispy, golden and sandwiched between two slider buns, the Fried Chicken Sliders topped with lettuce, pickles, tomatoes and whole grain mustard aioli from Executive Chef Marc Johnson are mouth-watering mini sandwiches you do not want to miss out on this American holiday. Pair these tasty bites with a couple of brews like Stoner Duck Nut Brown Hemp Ale ($7.00) or Dogtown Duck IPA ($7.00) and you have yourself a fine flavorful feast. That is what we call duck, duck, chicken?

As for smaller bites perfect for sharing, dive into a bowl of Korean Fried Chicken Wingssmothered in sweet and spicy chili sauce served with kimchi cucumbers ($12.00).
