Fried chicken does.
And fried chicken on top of doughnuts.
We speak of Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken, a heavenly junction of golden poultry and glorious fried dough from the District of Columbia, opening Wednesday in Downtown.
Maybe someday you’ll be able to smell a link. For now, find contentment with a look at the goods. Yep, this place is going to be vital. A perky, red-and-white nook off Pershing Square that you’ll concoct elaborate excuses to visit every time you hit Downtown going forward.
In the morning, do a draft latte with one of their classic flavors, like the crème brûlée doughnuts you’ll watch being blowtorched in the open kitchen. Come lunchtime, grab a thigh and a drumstick backed by one of the four monthly specials, like Meyer lemon pie or strawberry rhubarb crisp.
Or you can go for the two-birds, one-stone approach and design your own fried-chicken sandwich. Have it slathered with honey butter, kimchi slaw and a farm-fresh egg. Then get the whole shebang thrown between an Old Bay doughnut.
Gotta love where sandwich technology is going.
