June's issue of Bon Appétit mag is out with its "Hot Ten" and it's a rundown of the best places for fried chicken. By design, none is in the South.
Resurrection Ale House (2425 Grays Ferry Ave.) hit it:
"Crispy fried chicken with ice-cold beer is one of the great food-beverage pairings of the world, and this gastropub has exceptional versions of both: lots of locally brewed stuff on tap and twice-fried chicken with a spiced-honey drizzle."
