How many fried-chicken joints named after other cities does one neighborhood need?

NY chicken

If the neighborhood is Hyde Park, the answer is two. Both are on River Street; the New York one is in Cleary Square; the New Orleans version just outside Logan Square.

NO chicken

Fifth Annual Hyde Park ArtScene, 4 to 9 pm today. I might stop by there after Somerville's ArtBeat ends this afternoon.

(thanks to today's Boston Globe for telling me about the event. I haven't seen it advertised anywhere else)

On my blog. They didn't do a very good job of advertising it.

If you start at the Hyde Park police station on Hyde Park Avenue, turn left on River Street. The New York one will be on your left about a block down. Continue on River Street until you see the Municipal Building on your left. Turn left at the island there, which will keep you on River Street. The New Orleans one will be maybe a couple blocks up on your right.

Here's a map (technically, for the Tedeschi right next door).

New York Fried Chicken is 1239 River St; New Orleans Fried Chicken is 1160 River St. Traveling towards Cleary Square, even addresses on River are to the left and odd addresses are to the right.

New Orleans Fried Chicken is diagonally across from the Muni building and is bracketed by the barber shop and Kenney Cleaners.

The New Orleans one I understand. And, there is, of course, the ubiquitous Kentucky one. But New York? Since when does one associate NYC as an origin of good fried chicken? It's kind of like setting up a restaurant in Shreveport called "Boston Creole Cookin'."

They could be related to the ubiquitous Kennedy Fried Chicken.

Saratoga (home of a marvelous track, as well as the Thoroughbred Racing Hall Of Fame) has long been known as a place to get great fried chicken, at least among horse players.

Funny to read this post as I'm sitting here (in Montreal) staring at a Boston Pizza across the street. I guess folks are always seeking something a little different and the faraway place gives it a bit of that (though in this case I don't think the company has any relationship to the city other than the name).

I haven't been to Montreal in 19 years, and haven't sampled their famous smoked meat in a LONG time.

If it's a Montreal restaurant, I'd be more interested in the poutine specials.

I never tried that in Montreal, but they did offer it in some form in many of the fine fast food joint. Frites sauce was offered at a Burger King at the Montreal Olympic Park, as well as the McDonalds near the old Forum.

There is a restaurant in Manchester, New Hampshire called Chez Vachon that offers French Canadian specials, including poutine - but I'm not sure their poutine includes the rubbery cheese curds - I think they just use melted cheese.

Townsend's serves poutine! But, yeah, with cheese instead of curds, which sounds good to me, since I tried poutine once (at the Zoo de Granby) and while the French fries and gravy are a match made in heaven (mmmmmm), the curds, um, well, no, please, get them away from me! :-).

Townsend's should call it "Hyde Park poutine" if they're using cheddar cheese, but I agree...the rubbery curds in the authentic poutine would feel like chewing gum.

I would do almost anything for a (T-accessible) Gus' World Famous Hot and Spicy Fried Chicken.

The greatest chicken the world has ever seen.

There are also two NY fried chicken restaurants in Dorchester. One is in Upham's Corner and the other is near Grove Hall's Mecca I think.
