Weekend Planner: Fried Chicken Special at Table Fifty-Two, Rhine Hall Opens on Fridays, Kamayan Feast at Sunda

Fried Chicken Prix Fixe at Table Fifty-Two

Culminating a week-long celebration of National Fried Chicken Day, Friday is your final chance to partake in Table Fifty-Two's fried chicken-focused prix fixe special. It's an apt, bargain-oriented way to experience the restaurant's famed fried chicken, which is made via a four-step process that includes a six-hour brine and a 12-24 hour buttermilk bath before getting coated with egg, hot sauce, and flour. The restaurant's standout dish takes center stage on this special three-courser, which begins with cucumber and tomato salad followed by fried chicken served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and mini macaroni and cheese. For dessert, it's pecan pie with warm caramel and whipped cream. All for $38 per person.
