It’s the season for outdoor picnics and backyard barbecues. Fried chicken, a timeless classic and one of the top picnic foods of all time, can be a cornerstone of these spring and summer outings.
Just in time for July 4, Eater presents a roundup of D.C.-area restaurants that not only specialize in the comfort food but also offer it up for take-out, satisfying those fried-chicken needs for the holiday weekend, picnics, lunches in the park and more.
Blue 44 serves fried chicken dinners on Monday nights only. The one-day special is $19 and includes three pieces of the award-winning chicken, a starter salad, sauteed green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy, a buttermilk biscuit and a housemade dessert which varies from week to week.
Our Fried Chicken special is on another great list! We are honored to be a part of Zagat’s list of 12 Fried Chicken Nights in DC. Among great company here and we do it every Monday!

But we’ve noticed a recent uptick in fried chicken nights around town, signaling that this blue-plate special is experiencing a bit of a trendy surge. Here’s where you can sniff out fried chicken deals throughout the week, particularly on Sunday and Monday nights:
