Under the Sun’s Wednesday evening special.
Last month, when my husband and I enjoyed the new brunch menu at Under the Sun (click here for my post), the buzz around the communal table was for Fried Chicken Wednesdays. The chicken was great, we heard. The lines built up, we were cautioned. We promised ourselves that we’d try it, and now we have, arriving shortly after 4 p.m. to avoid the wait.
We ordered Fried Chicken for One, with three pieces and one side, plus a couple of additional sides, which sufficed for us to share. My husband is a mashed potato addict, but when he learned that Under the Sun serves its without gravy, he made a comment and ordered biscuits and gravy instead. The waiter brought a complimentary order of gravy in case the mashed potatoes that they were not sufficiently rich and buttery to stand alone. In my view they were — happily so, since I don’t really care for country gravy. Here’s the array of comfort dishes that we ate:
Price check: On Fried Chicken Wednesdays, Fried Chicken for One (three pieces of chicken, choice of one side), $11.95; Fried Chicken for Two (six pieces of chicken, two sides), $20.95; Fried Chicken for Four (12 pieces of chicken, four sides), $38.95; Fried Chicken for Six (18 pieces of chicken, six sides); additional sides, $2 each.
