From the Fountain of Excess
Now that stalwarts Restoration and Jack’s Fried Chicken are no more, the place to get chef Jack Carson’s famous fried chicken is at his latest establishment The Parish: For $288, you can help yourself to unlimited portions of the bird every Monday, served with fries, homemade ketchup and chipotle sauce. The week of excess carries on with Fat Tuesdays:
$188 for endless barbecued baby back ribs served with soup, salad and unlimited fries. On Wednesdays, get your hands dirty at Shrimp Boil night—with succulent and sweet fresh shrimp cooked in The Parish’s own spice blended broth ($250 half pan, $488 full). While you’re at it (and if you have the stomach space), help yourself to The Parish’s twist on hearty Creole classics like black truffle grits with mushroom and Brie gratin, smoky duck and andouille gumbo, and prawn and chicken jambalaya. 44 Staunton St., Central, 2803-0050.
