Is a fried chicken boom building in Philly?
First, Love & Honey Fried Chicken opens to sellout crowds in Northern Liberties. Now, chef Adam Volk is bringing Redcrest Fried Chicken to the corner where 11th and Cross Streets meet Passyunk Avenue.
According to Volk’s Facebook page, he’s looking at a September opening, with noon to midnight hours to accommodate lunch, dinner, and late night crowds. The space was once home to a seafood market.
Volk’s recipe is based on a buttermilk marinade; he plans to serve up a “fairly traditional southern style” in addition to wilder flavors like red curry.
The chef, a Souderton, Pennsylvania native, has been Brooklyn-based but returned to Philadelphia last year.
