When I lived in California, I went to Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles in Los Angeles, a favorite of Redd Foxx. But Roscoe’s has nothing on the fried chicken and waffle I had at Back 40 West in SoHo. They only serve it at brunch and lunch, and it’s not even on the menu at the original Back 40 in the East Village. Which is a shame because if it were available for dinner, that would be a fantastic place to take a girl on a date. Any woman who recognizes the celestial congruity of fried chicken and waffles is a woman worth getting to know.
