The people in the kitchen at The Onyx Room are soul-food superheroes. From the humble collard greens to the sublime fried chicken to the pork chop smothered in a savory onion gravy, the food sings. There's plenty of pork in the prep, which is a good thing, in spite of whatever the American Medical Association might say. But let's talk about the fried chicken. The bird comes to the table sizzling-hot and with a skin crispy and perfectly seasoned. The inside is juicy and sweet. This is the epitome of what fried chicken is meant to be. We even dream about it.
