Best Fried Chicken 

SoHo Kitchen

Fried chicken is a lot like sex: Even when it’s bad, it’s good. But exceptional fried chicken? That actually can be better than sex — good sex even. It’s not like customers at SoHo are all moaning When Harry Met Sally style during dinner, but they are cooing about the fried chicken. And why shouldn’t they be? This Southern-styled eatery in Ohio City is known for a lot of things: its genial service, its killer bourbon list, its amazing shrimp and grits. But it’s the ridiculously crunchy fried chicken, moist as a Nashville summer afternoon, that folks can’t seem to get enough of. Brined, bathed in buttermilk, and deep fried to a copper hue, the addictive chicken makes a suitable partner for rosemary waffles, mashed taters, or whiskey neat.
