Piece of Chicken
This venue is closed.
What can you get for a buck these days? At the still-operational kitchen window of the recently shuttered theater-district landmark Jezebel, where owner Alberta Wright launched back-of-the-house takeout service this past winter, you get plenty. One dollar buys you a pile of vinegary collards, or a piece of fried whiting, or a fat-streaked rib bit, or a small pile of crispy chicken livers. And yes, it buys you a piece of chicken, fried to a golden-crusted, tender-fleshed turn. The food comes from the same kitchen that once dispensed $32.75 entrées, and all that is required for the steep discount is the patience to wait on a somewhat sluggish line and the willingness to eat your bargain supper out of a Styrofoam container with hot sauce that comes in packets.
