Welcome to the other KFC. Kennedy Fried Chicken is a New York City chain of fried chicken joints with a loyal fanbase and quite a few lawyers fighting off trademark cases brought on by that other, more well-known KFC. The offerings extend far beyond fried chicken: beef ribs, burgers, fried jumbo shrimp, steak sandwiches and gyros are all on the menu. Of course, most people come for the fried chicken, available both by the piece and in combo meals. You can also get your chicken in nugget or strip form accompanied by a healthy portion of French fries. Oddly enough the restaurant also serves a small selection of Breyer¹s ice cream, just in case you need some sugar to counteract all of that chicken grease. The interior is your basic run-down fast food joint, which really gets hopping late at night when East Village bar-goers stop in for something to soak up the beer in their stomachs.—Keith Wagstaff
