If you're like many local foodies, you're wondering why May's Counter Chicken and Waffles (2945 E. Speedway Blvd.) isn't open yet, despite numerous reports that it would be by now.
John Foster, who is opening the restaurant with Phoenix chef Aaron May, says he had to push back the opening after his furniture delivery was delayed. The eatery was initially expected to open in late May, but that date was pushed back to Sunday, June 20. However, that date has come and gone, and the restaurant has yet to open.
Foster said he's currently on schedule to open by August. He expects to start hiring and training employees in about three weeks.
