Chicken and waffles aren’t a duo we generally get excited about. Granted, we’re not from the South, so it’s possible the real thing has eluded us. Lazy attempts as ironic menu items around here have always left us feeling like the chicken and the waffle are two completely separate species, not meant to make sweet love in your mouth. But things done changed. Sweet Chick now has us thinking differently.
A recent addition to the corner of N. 8th and Bedford Avenue in central Williamsburg, Sweet Chick is our kind of neighborhood spot. It specializes in fried chicken and waffles, but it’s not a one trick pony. There’s a full menu of simple, yet well executed Southern eats, a fun cocktail list, and great selection of local beer on tap. It’s the kind of spot we gravitate toward, with a unpretentious vibe, good people, and a communal atmosphere. Expect to be surrounded by lots of tattoos and old school Outkast. Like, the entire ATLiens record too, not just Ms. Jackson. Sweet Chick can also be utilized as simply a watering hole -a solid place to hang and booze with friends. The kitchen is open until 2AM, which makes it one of the best Late Night Eats options around, perfect for a post-show hang at Music Hall of Williamsburg.
We’re not sure what the end game is here, but Sweet Chick has got the branding element to this whole niche food theme down. Think Meatball Shop, but for chicken and waffles. We’ll assume expansion is inevitable, which is a good thing for all of us.
