phillymag.com – The East Passyunk strip finally has its long-awaited fried chicken restaurant.
Redcrest, chef Adam Volk’s long-awaited fried chicken spot, debuts at 1525 South 11th Street this Thursday, February 1st at 11 a.m.
“I was trying to find a way to make money in this business, and then I walked into a burger shack,” said Volk, an area native who co-owns Esme and The Exley in Brooklyn and came back to South Philly with his family last year. “It was simple, the ingredients were good, and business was good. That’s what Shake Shack is, so I thought I’d do one with fried chicken.”
Also on Thursday, Redcrest will give away one free piece of fried chicken or one free mini chicken sandwich to folks who come by between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Delivery via Grubhub will start on February 2nd, just in time for the Super Bowl on Sunday.
I’m alllllllll the way in for new chicken spots in Philly….we’ll have to see how elite it is but it sounds promising
