The Plate: Lucy’s Chicken Biscuit Oh My!
The Place: Gary Rack’s Fat Rooster, 204 E. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach; 266-3642 or www.thefatrooster.com.
The Price: $9
The Skinny: After a morning of newspapering, we were starved — nothing like working with the prose of journalism pros to whet an appetite.
We sought out Southern-fried comfort at Fat Rooster, in the former Linda Bean’s location, and for the most part, we were satisfied.
We tried an appetizer of the chicken on a biscuit. It was a tender fillet of white-meat chicken battered and fried until crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside.
The biscuit was light and fluffy, and we loved the combination of sweet and heat in the apple pepper jelly. The sides of coleslaw ($4) and curly fries ($5) we ordered were nice, if unexceptional.
Also tasty: The blueberry lemonade, a vodka-based cocktail that had us hankering for more. Our only nitpick: The waiter told us it was happy hour; what he didn’t tell us was that none of the specialty drinks, including the lemonade, was part of the special.
That left a sour taste in our mouths, and we don’t think it was the lemons.
