Parson’s Chicken and Fish

A few weeks ago, my best gals and I went to try a new restaurant in the city (Chicago).  Parson’s Chicken and  Fish is its name…can you guess what their specialty is?  You did it!  Fried Chicken and fried fish.  Now, I must warn you that it is certainly a hipster hotspot at the moment and guarantees a long wait to get in.  To put things in perspective, we were told it would be a 45 minute wait to be seated and ended up waiting over an hour for a table and an additional hour before we saw any food.  Needless to say, we were crabby, hungry, and more than a little bit drunk before any greasy goodness touched our lips.  Not the best way to start a meal at a new place.  Luckily, the food rocked our socks off and (along with the booze consumption) cleared up any ill feelings we were having at that point.  Here’s what we ate:
